Didi Chuxing, a Chinese-based ride-hailing company, has launched its car rental service, according to a report by South China Morning Post.
Didi will co-operate with car rental companies to rent out vehicles, the company told the South China Morning Post. Users can rent and pay for a vehicle through the Didi app two hours in advance, and Didi will then have a driver deliver the vehicle to the user’s location, says the report.
Didi’s car rental service is in the testing stage in Shanghai and plans to expand to more cities by the first half of 2017, according to the report.
“Didi Car Rental is launched in response to the boom in China’s short-term and tourist car rental market as the population goes through a lifestyle revolution,” the company told the Post.
Didi acquired all assets of Uber China in August.
