Honda to team up with Alibaba in connected cars

Online conglomerates vow to lead the future of China's auto market

TOKYO -- Honda Motor will partner with Alibaba Group Holding on developing services for connected cars as more automakers start working with Chinese internet conglomerates in hopes of making further inroads into the world's largest auto market.

The Japanese automaker will work with the Chinese e-retailing titan's AutoNavi business. They plan to develop a service that lets drivers make reservations using AutoNavi maps and make payments via Alibaba's online platform Alipay. Decisions will be made soon on when to make the service available on which vehicles.
