The new Roewe City sport utility vehicle is the physical manifestation of several deals Alibaba has inked in the last year, including a $160 million agreement with state-controlled SAIC Motor Corp and $590 million stake in smartphone manufacturer Meizu. The “internet car” will be joint-released with SAIC and powered by Yun OS, the Meizu smartphone operating system, Alibaba tells Quartz.
