Daimler AG's Mercedes-Benz said Tuesday that its Chief Technology Officer Sajjad Khan will leave the company.

Mr. Khan, also a member of the Mercedes-Benz management board, will leave at his own request on Sept. 1 to pursue his own entrepreneurial activities, the Stuttgart-based car maker said.

Magnus Oestberg will join Mercedes-Benz and assume overall responsibility for the MB.OS--the car maker's vehicle-operating system--as chief software officer, also on Sept. 1, the company said.

Research-and-development activities for e-vehicles will now be brought together under Markus Schaefer, Mercedes-Benz Cars chief operating officer, as part of the electric-only direction of Mercedes-Benz, the company added.
