China’s leading mobile transportation platform and Uber-equivalent, DiDi Chuxing, the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance, and other automakers have reached an agreement to introduce a new electric vehicle car-sharing platform in China.

The program will include the launch of a robo-ride-hailing service. Not many details have been provided, other than it is in the initial exploratory phase. No word on timeline and costs, other than Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi’s previously announced supplier agreement to provide Didi with autonomous electric vehicles.

“The potential business and technology opportunities that we will explore with DiDi are quite promising,” said Ogi Redzic, senior vice president of Connected Vehicles and Mobility Services for Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi. “This cooperation fits with the Alliance expansion in vehicle electrification, autonomy, connectivity and new mobility services.”

“Strategic partnerships with the world’s leading industry players like Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi will enable us to pool our strengths and resources to meet diversified mobility demands and create an open, sharing-based transportation ecosystem, as we innovate vehicles for a future of ridesharing, AI technology and new energy,” said Chen Ting, general manager for Didi Chuxing’s Express Mobility Group.

China is the world’s top electric vehicle market, generating well-publicized legislative efforts that call for ambition sales goals of zero and low-emission vehicles a year by 2025. Production quotas constituting a percentage of automaker all-electric or plug-in hybrid output is also expected to go into effect, starting in 2019.

In early January, the country also banned the production of 553 car models contributing towards dangerous levels of air pollution, marking one of the most aggressive efforts of its kind.

Other activity in China has seen increased production and sales-focused collaborations, such as Chinese retail giant Alibaba and Ford co-marketing of electric cars and Volkswagen’s mid-Nov. 2017 $12-billion investment towards electric vehicle production alongside Anhui Jianghuai Automobile Group (JAC Motors).

The complete partner list includes BAIC BJEV, BYD, Chang’an Automobile Group, Chery Automobile Group, Dongfeng Passenger Vehicle, First Auto Works, Geely Auto, Hawtai Motor, JAC Motors, KIA Motors, Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi, and Zotye Auto.
