Didi Steers Towards More Trips, Self-Driving in Three-Year Plan

Chinese ride-hailing giant Didi Chuxing has unveiled a three-year development plan that provides a roadmap for how it sees itself developing, including the volume of trips it hopes to log and businesses that will become its main focuses.

Didi aims to complete more than 100 million trips a day and have 800 million monthly active users globally by 2022, the company said in a statement emailed to Caixin.

It did not specify its current average daily global orders or users. But it said that Didi had made over 1 billion trips in its international markets as of early 2020, and it sees this as an opportunity to diversify. Currently, the company has presences in Japan, Australia and Latin America. Its businesses in Japan range from ride hailing to food delivery.

Apart from continuing to expand its established transport services such as taxi hailing and carpooling, the Beijing-based company will also place more emphasis on autonomous driving vehicles, according to the statement.
