Chinese online services firm Meituan-Dianping will launch a car-hailing service in Beijing this week — a move that could potentially ignite a subsidy war akin to the one that roiled the industry years ago.

The company has been conducting trial car-hailing services in Nanjing since early last year, and will launch its service in the Chinese capital on Friday, multiple media outlets reported.
