TOKYO (Reuters) – Toyota Motor Corp is considering investing about 60 billion yen ($550 million) in Chinese ride-hailing giant Didi Chuxing, the Nikkei business daily reported on Wednesday.
Japan’s top automaker was also looking to set up a new mobility-services company in China, the Nikkei said.
Toyota has made large investments in other ride-hailing firms such as Uber and Grab as traditional automakers race to team up with disruptive tech companies.
