[January 14, 2014]  DETROIT (Reuters)  The top executive at Daimler AG <DAIGn.DE> said on Monday the German automaker was likely to achieve its cost-savings target earlier than expected  and he declined to rule out the possibility the savings might exceed the company's goals.

Speaking at the Detroit auto show, Chief Executive Dieter Zetsche said Daimler's aim of achieving annual cost savings of 2 billion euros ($2.73 billion) before the end 2014 was "likely."

"Whether we exceed it remains to be seen," he said.
