Daimler (DDAIF) CEO Dieter Zetsche says the automaker is open to talking to other global automakers about partnering on a small car platform.

The company has met with reps from Volkswagen, BMW, and Fiat in the past before deciding gains from a project would only be marginal.

However, future strategic initiatives from Daimler could include joint ventures, says Zetsche.
