Daimler is starting the year with optimism after a strong finish to 2020, Chief Executive Ola Kaellenius said, adding that sales in the fourth quarter had continued the strong trend seen in the preceding three months.

Sales growth in the fourth quarter was "driven by China - but not China alone", Kaellenius told reporters, after reaching 4% year-on-year in the prior quarter. Daimler will publish its fourth-quarter sales on Friday.
