After Slaying Uber, Didi Faces Domestic Rivals

Didi Chuxing, the Chinese ride hailing app that defeated Uber in China, is facing fresh challenges from a host of local rivals that are raising money and expanding through alliances.

The latest challenge may be a potential alliance between China’s second largest car rental firm, eHi Car Services, and Shouqi Group, a state-owned taxi and limousine provider that got the first ridesharing license ever in Beijing.

Shouqi didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
