[Homework]

So you’re in Beijing and you need to get somewhere. It’s too far to walk so you’re gonna need to have a ride. If you live in China and you speak Chinese, it’s a good chance you’re going to pull out your phone and open up an app called Didi Chuxing.

It’s simply used really, you just tell the app where you are, and where you wanna go. And when the car arrives, you hop in (hop in=上车), tell him where you’re going. Take off.

Didi Chuxing or Didi for short said that rides like this one happen 11 million times per day across China in 400 different cities. Now since that 300 million users and most experts agree that it’s market share in somewhere between 75 and 90%.

But the company does have competitors in car for higher apps.  So let’s say you forgot you wallet and you wanna go back, except this time you pull out your phone and you open up uber.

In most of the world, uber is the alpha app, but in China it’s more like the plucky start-up looking to put a dent (凹陷) in a Didi dominated field. It’s trying to get that foothold by offering extremely low prices and subsidies to its drivers.


You can now grab a uber like this one in around 50 different Chinese cities, but progress is coming at a cost. In February, uber CEO said the company was losing over one billion US dollars per year here. As in the short term it prioritizes expending its presence in the hope of making money down the road.

China has more than 1.3 billion people, many of whom have places to be. No whether it’s Didi or uber that gets them there, it's one of the biggest tech battles in the world.
