Published on July 11, 2016 by Tycho de Feijter
Alibaba and SAIC have jointly launched an ‘Internet Car’ in China, Alibaba says. The term internet car refers to the Internet of Things (IoT) where everything is connected; your smartphone with your car, your car with your home, and your home with your phone.
Alibaba has nothing to do with the actual car. It was designed and developed by the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC). It is marketed under SAIC’s Roewe brand and sold via Roewe’s existing dealer network.
