      "Uber China, the ride-sharing company’s unit in the Asian powerhouse, is set to experience massive expansion this year, reports TechCrunch. Currently Uber is available in 22 cities in the most populous country on the planet, but that number is set to rapidly grow to more than 100 cities by the end of 2016.

      (...)

      "2015 was Uber China’s ‘Year of Localization’ and 2016 will be our ‘Year of Growth’," Zhen Liu, Uber China’s head of Strategy, said in a statement.

      (...)

      However, as TechCrunch notes, even if Uber can pull of its massive Chinese expansion in 2016 it will still lag well behind China’s biggest ride-sharer, Didi Kuaidi, which is in over 360 cities and towns in China."
