FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Daimler DAIGn.DE Chief Executive Ola Kaellenius on Thursday said the company's Mercedes-Benz luxury brand will seek to develop its high-end luxury vehicle segment as a way to hike profits.

“I see the strongest growth in the upper end of the segments where we are active,” Kaellenius told journalists in a call to discuss the company’s quarterly results.
