    In addition, at the end of April 2021, approximately 11% of Active Drivers also leased automobiles from Senmiao, which demonstrates the added value brought by Senmiao's strategy to cross sell its core ride-hailing focused automobile finance and leasing business with the newer ride-hailing business.
