Ford CEO says partnering with VW is a 'delicate dance'

Volkswagen's supervisory board is scheduled to meet on Thursday to review a 10-year strategic plan by Chief Executive Herbert Diess that is expected to propose using alliances with rivals to cut development costs for electric and autonomous vehicles and potentially other types of vehicles. Ford and VW have acknowledged that they are in discussions. "Herbert and I had a great discussion," about the commercial vehicle business, Hackett said.
