RenRenChe says it is planning to use this new investment to hire more staff and invest in new technology. The company has also had investment from Didi Chuxing, and regularly sells cars to the Chinese ride-hailing giant.

Other backers in this most recent round included Shunwei Capital, Tencent and Beijing Prometheus Capital.
