Giant funding round into JiDu Auto, jointly owned and developed by Greely (the owner of Volvo), and Baidu, will take on all the other major Electric Vehicle makers in the world from 2023, once mass production starts.

Baidu is all set to create the ‘Volvo’ of Chinese Electric Vehicle market. Almost a year after the launch of JiDu Auto, Baidu’s ambitious electric vehicle (EV) venture, the company is ready to take on the market with new funding round.
