In response, baidu did not respond, GAC said the company has a strategic partnership with Baidu, and any further cooperation is under discussion. Geely said he did not know about it. FAW did not comment at all.
Now, Baidu's circle of car making friends has expanded. Today, a person familiar with the matter said that Baidu may join hands with Weima to build a car. At present, both sides are discussing the possible cooperation mode. Baidu responded by not commenting.
