The company said that this acquisition will enhance its ability to control the upstream of automobile industry.

Beijing-based online chauffeured car service provider Ucar said in an announcement that it plans to acquire a 67% stake in auto manufacturer Beijing Borgward Automobile in a RMB4.1 billion yuan (US$610 million) cash deal.

Unlike China’s ride-hailing giant Didi Chuxing, Ucar rents out cars and cooperates with companies with professional drivers to underpin its chauffeured car service.
