Tencent ties up with Guangzhou Auto
    2017-09-20  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

TENCENT Holdings and Guangzhou Automobile Group Co. have agreed to collaborate on Internet-connected cars — a strategic pact that sent shares in Guangzhou Auto surging.

The development of self-driving cars and fast-changing technology have set in motion a flurry of alliances between Internet giants and automakers. Earlier this year, Tencent bought 5 percent of U.S. electric-car maker Tesla Inc. for US$1.78 billion.

Tencent and Guangzhou Auto will work together to develop Internet-connected cars and artificial intelligence-aided driving, as well as explore investment in areas such as auto-related e-commerce, so-called new energy cars and auto insurance, the automaker said in a filing late Monday.

Guangzhou Auto said it aimed to tap Tencent’s expertise in mobile payments, social networking, big data and artificial intelligence. Tencent will also provide cloud services and other technical support.

Tencent has been a relative latecomer among China’s largest tech firms to delve into the auto sector. E-commerce giant Alibaba Holdings has a joint venture with Shanghai-based automaker SAIC Motor Corp., while Baidu Inc. has been developing self-driving cars.
