Uber Chinese rival Didi makes Mexico launch official

Friday, April 6, 2018

Chinese ride-hailing company Didi Chuxing has publicly launched in Mexico with a website advertising its service to drivers and passengers and setting the stage for a potentially expensive showdown with rival Uber.

Late last year, Didi Chuxing Technology started laying plans for Mexico, marking the company’s first launch outside Asia. Mexico’s clogged streets, underdeveloped public transit system and growing base of smartphone users make the country ripe for app-based ride services.
