Europe's debt crisis may have truncated growth of the auto market in western Europe, but that doesn't mean all hope is lost for German automotive company Daimler. The company reported a 9% increase in revenues for 2011, up from about $120 million in 2010. While the company says it expects a slower growth rate in 2012, the Mercedes-Benz van market is expected to weather the industry's storms. Last year the van market saw a 17% growth in revenues. The German automaker recently signed a deal with Nissan Motor to expand its partnership with Russia-based auto manufacturer Kamaz. The deal allows the company to further its reach in the Japanese and Russian auto markets. --S.J.
