DiDi to introduce first shared EV fleet to Mexico; 700+ EVs and hybrids to start

Didi Chuxing (DiDi), the world’s leading mobile transportation platform, will launch Latin America’s first shared electric vehicle (EV) fleet through its app in Mexico, as the company further invests in sustainable transportation innovations in the region.

Launched in April 2018, DiDi Mexico offers its range of ride-hailing, taxi-hailing and food delivery services across 32 cities, covering 50% of the nation’s population. In 2019, the number of trips people have taken with DiDi grow by nearly three and a half times. DiDi Food, launched in early 2019, also registered impressive growth in an underdeveloped market. 30% of the customers and 40% of the restaurants on DiDi Food never used a digital platform before.

In 2020, DiDi Mexico plans to roll out a number of new initiatives on smart and sustainable urban mobility. As the first new energy initiative for ride-hailing in Latin America, DiDi will introduce a fleet of electric and hybrid vehicles to its platform in Mexico.
