ECARX, an auto tech startup backed by Chinese automaker Geely, has raised 1.3 billion yuan ($194 million) in its series A funding round led by Baidu, increasing its valuation to more than 10 billion yuan.

The proceeds from the financing round, which is also joined by U.S.-based Susquehanna International Group, will be used to develop car chips, high-definition mapping technology and autonomous driving technology, ECARX said in a WeChat post on Monday.

In July 2019, ECARX and Baidu’s Apollo autonomous driving platform signed an agreement to deepen collaboration in Xiaodu In-Car OS, an artificial intelligence (AI)-based IoV solution, voice technology and car-mounted maps.

ECARX also plans to establish a research and development center in Europe by the end of this year, according to the post.
