CHENGDU, China, Dec. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Senmiao Technology Limited ("Senmiao") (Nasdaq: AIHS), a financing and servicing company focused on the online ride-hailing industry in China as well as an operator of its own online ride-hailing platform, today announced the launch of its proprietary online ride-hailing platform, Xixingtianxia, for drivers in Changsha, China. Changsha is the second city in China in which Senmiao has launched its platform (along with Chendgu in late October 2020).
The expansion to Changsha is strategic for Senmiao, as it has previously served as a core city in which Senmiao initially provided auto financing and leasing services for the ride-hailing market. Changsha is the capital and highest populated city in Hunan Province in China, with approximately 8 million people.
In recent weeks, Senmiao has strengthened the total solution it provides to ride-hailing drivers through collaborations with integration platforms in China, such as Gaode Map and Meituan (HK: 3690). Senmiao expects its service in Changsha to grow through the integration of these applications with its platform in the near future. In addition, the Company recently signed agreements with affiliates of BYD Company Limited (electric vehicle manufacturer (HK:1211 and SZSE:002594)) for the purchase of electronic vehicles in Changsha.
Mr. Xi Wen, Senmiao's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer stated, "We are pleased to have launched Xixingtianxia in Changsha following a successful roll-out in Chengdu. We remain cautious as to the impact of further COVID-19 developments on the ride-hailing industry, but feel that the efforts made over the second half of 2020 have prepared Senmiao to take advantage of a recovery in the coming year. Senmiao remains hyper-focused on growing market share in two large metropolitan markets in China, as Chengdu and Changsha have a total population of approximately 24 million people. With the partnerships Senmiao has implemented, we are confident in our ability to expand our market position."
