GUANGZHOU, China (Reuters) - Volkswagen AG
Didi Chuxing is China's largest ride-hailing company, with 300 million users across more than 400 cities in China. It cemented its dominance in the domestic market earlier this year, when it bought Uber's operations in the country.
Volkswagen, one of the world's biggest automakers, also announced this year that it is investing in ride-hailing company Gett.
In similar moves, General Motors has invested in ride-hailing service Lyft and Toyota Motor Corp has a partnership with Uber Technologies [UBER.UL].
