Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) Chief Executive Matthias Mueller said he did not rule out he could hold merger talks with Fiat Chrysler (FCHA.MI) boss Sergio Marchionne, in a marked change of tone by the German carmaker toward its Italian-American peer.
"I am not ruling out a conversation," Mueller told journalists after VW's annual results news conference. Marchionne has long advocated car industry mergers to share the costs of making cleaner and more technologically advanced vehicles and has repeatedly relayed his desire via the media.
