By Edward Taylor and Andreas Cremer FRANKFURT/BERLIN (Reuters) - Volkswagen denied planning a bid for U.S. truck maker Paccar after analysts published comments in a research note from a senior executive of German rival Daimler saying he had heard of such a plan. According to Bernstein Research, Daimler Trucks Chief Wolfgang Bernhard insisted that "serious, multiple sources" informed him that VW was going to bid for Paccar in 2015. A spokesman at VW's Wolfsburg-based headquarters emphatically denied the rumours, calling them "complete rubbish." Daimler declined to comment while Paccar was not immediately available for comment.
