China’s Didi Chuxing announced it has launched its ride-hailing services in Chile and Colombia, taking on its US rival Uber in those countries.The company’s Didi Express became available in Valparaiso, Chile’s second largest metropolitan area, on June 3, while it launched in Colombia’s capital of Bogota on June 4.The company also said it plans to launch a taxi-hailing service in Colombia later this year.Didi’s expansion in the region was tipped off in February as the company started recruiting managers in Chile, Peru, and Colombia.It also began looking for driver operations, crisis management, marketing, and business development personnel around the time.“We will work hard to build partnerships with drivers, passengers, policymakers and business partners to provide fully localized mobility services that offer safe, efficient, and affordable rides to local consumers while providing attractive and flexible income opportunities for private-car and taxi drivers,” said Mi Yang, head of Didi’s operations for Central and South America.
The wheels are turning on Didi Chuxing’s first major expansion in Latin America after the Chinese ride-hailing firm announced moves into Chile and Colombia to double its presence in the region.The company plans to expand beyond those cities over time, and, in terms of services, it said that it will add dedicated licensed taxis in Colombia this year.Anchored in China, where it is the country’s dominant ride-hailing service, Didi began to place focus on international expansion last year and Latin America is a key part of its global ambitions.In the region, Didi currently operates in Brazil — where it acquired local player 99 for $1 billion — and Mexico, but recent reports have linked it with more countries in Latin America.In February, Reuters reported that the company was hiring for operational staff in Chile, Peru and Colombia.Other reports have put its total headcount in Latin America at over 1,000 staff, that’s a clear indication of its intent for the region.
Guangzhou has become the first Chinese municipal government to reverse a ban on additional rental bikes, the popularity of which resulted in tangles of broken frames littering major cities.The city announced Tuesday the results of a call for bids from the city’s incoming official bike operators—Mobike, Hellobike, and Didi’s Qingju.In an announcement released by the Guangzhou Transportation Bureau, Mobike was granted the biggest allotment.It will be allowed to add 180,000 new bicycles over the next three years to six districts in the downtown area.Hellobike won a 120,000 quota and Qingju was granted 100,000 units, first entries into the gateway city of south China for both companies.“A more efficient, sustainable rental bike market now requires more technology-driven and data-based operational methods,” (our translation) Ren Liangliang, vice president of Hellobike said publicly in Guangzhou in late March.
It’s rumored (Chinese link) that at a dinner attended by Ant Financial and Hello TransTech (formerly Hellobike) bigwigs, Ant Financial CEO Jing Xiandong cracked open a bottle of Guizhou Maotai, an upmarket brand of Chinese rice wine, Jack Ma had previously gifted him, worth over a million RMB.The short answer is, by taking the wheel of Hello TransTech’s Series D and every subsequent funding round after that, Jack Ma-controlled Ant Financial secured a critical component of Alibaba’s mobility ecosystem designs.To understand Ant Financial’s investment in Hello and what that means for Alibaba, we need to wrap our heads around two things: (1) why on-demand mobility matters for Alibaba; and (2) what pieces Alibaba had in its mobility ecosystem before Ant Financial pounced on Hello.Alibaba’s restaurant review, venue booking, ticket purchase, and hotel reservation services are all linked to a common theme: going out and having a good time.This requires adjacent services to transport users from home to venue, between venues, and back home again.As such, on-demand mobility closes the loop between the existing services in Alibaba’s ecosystem.

Toyota mulls $548m investment in Chinese ride-hailer Didi Chuxing – Nikkei Asian ReviewWhat happened: Toyota Motor Corp is planning to invest about 60 billion yen (around $548 million) in Chinese ride-hailing giant Didi, hoping to gain a foothold in the world’s largest auto market.It is also reportedly considering setting up a new joint company with Didi offering mobility services in China.A Toyota spokesman told Reuters that the company continues to evaluate its global business strategies in sharing mobility, electric vehicles, and connected driverless technologies, but has “nothing to announce at this time.”Why is important: Toyota has made large deals with some other ride-hailing firms in hopes of becoming a “mobility company” rather than just a traditional auto manufacturer.The Japanese automaker struck a $500 million investment deal with Uber in August to work jointly on autonomous vehicles, which will be deployed in the US company’s ride-hailing network.

Chinese bike-rental companies are taking an indirect path to revive their businesses — replacing old bikes with new ones.Didi this week replaced 10,000 used bikes in Beijing with 3,000 new ones in an effort to refresh its brand image while complying with the government’s restrictions.However, it was immediately reprimanded by the municipal government for violating rules.According to a report by Beijing Youth Daily, 3,000 new Qingju bikes were introduced to Xierqi, an area in Beijing home to the headquarters of Chinese internet giants such as Baidu and Didi.Didi, which owns bike-rental services Qingju and Bluegogo, said it had removed 10,000 old Bluegogo bikes from the area a month earlier after being granted permission from the Zhongguancun administrative committee to better meet demand and help relieve traffic in the area.Xierqi belongs to Zhongguancun Technology Park.
Chinese ride-hailing giant Didi’s finalized a strategic partnership agreement with State Grid EV Service for its electric vehicle (EV) initiative today.State Grid EV Service is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the State Grid of China, the country’s largest state-owned electric utility entity.Under the partnership, State Grid’s nationwide network of charging stations will be connected to Didi’s open auto-solutions platform, Xiaoju Automobile Solutions, to provide integrated mobility, recharging, and energy-related services, according to an emailed statement from the company.The cooperation will roll out first in key central and southeast provinces including Zhejiang, Fujian, Jiangsu, Shandong, Shaanxi, Hunan, and Jiangxi.Didi has been attaching more strategic importance to auto-related services as it tries to move beyond its core ride-hailing business.In April 2018, the company invested $1 billion in Xiaoju Automobile Solutions.
Chinese electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer Xiaopeng on Thursday launched a ride-hailing service in southern China, as automakers look to the industry and market leader Didi accrues losses from its operations.The move comes after the EV maker was granted a ride-hailing license by city authorities earlier this week.Unlike Didi, Xiaopeng will employ all of the “trained, verified and monitored professional drivers” on its platform, the company said in a statement.Xiaopeng is rolling out the service with an initial “several hundred” of its G3 SUVs, though it plans to increase its fleet size to 2,000 by the end of 2019.“The Pengstar service will allow Xpeng Motors to gain important operational experience from a diversified range of driving scenarios, [and] deeper understanding of customer behavior and preference,” the company said.Operating a ride-hailing fleet also gives the company access to additional training data that could be used to further develop its autonomous driving system.
Drivers are able to save more steering an EV compared to a gas vehicle.Environmentally conscious consumers will choose to hire an electric car.And EVs are designed with better compatibility with autonomous driving, which is expected to hit the public road in the coming decades.Indeed, Tesla is eyeing to launch its first robotaxis in 2020 as part of a broader ride-sharing scheme.Over in China where Tesla has a few disciples, EV startup Xpeng Motors, also known as Xiaopeng, just started offering a ride-hailing app powered by its own electric fleets.Rather, this may be a prime time to crack a market long dominated by Didi, which is prioritizing safety over growth following two high-profile incidents and a series of new government regulations.
Chinese electric vehicle start-up Xpeng Motors is making a foray into the country’s ride-hailing market – a move that will intensify competition in a business that has yet to deliver profits for industry giants Didi Chuxing and Uber.Alibaba-backed Xpeng, which received a ride-hailing operation license from Guangzhou authorities on Monday, could start trial services as early as this month, according to people familiar with the matter.“It will be an important component to Xpeng’s ecosystem, with cars as the entry point to broader service offering,” said an employee who declined to be named as the information is not yet public.Xpeng declined to comment on the timetable or fleet size of the service, saying that the company’s long-term goal is to “build a smart mobility ecosystem with truly intelligent products, best user experience, and value-added services for customers.”The move would see the start-up join a growing list of carmakers and internet peers in the ride-hailing fray even though industry leaders continue to post losses despite years of efforts.In April, Didi revealed that it was losing money on many trips after the country’s largest ride-hailing platform disclosed its financial breakdown for the first time.
