Electromobility in Mexico: A Roadmap for Sustainable Transportation

The Mexican Association of the Automotive Industry (AMIA) has presented a two-year study on Mexico’s transition to eco-friendly mobility, commissioned to Frost & Sullivan. This roadmap addresses challenges and opportunities clearly.

The study explores Mexico’s current and future electromobility landscape, advocating an efficient plan drawing from global best practices. It covers hybrid, plug-in hybrid, electric, and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.

This shift aligns with international commitments like the Paris Agreement and automakers’ 2050 green goals in Mexico.

AMIA’s President, José Zozaya, highlights the study’s market, manufacturing, infrastructure, and customer insights, forming recommendations for Mexico’s global role.

Mexico urgently needs a national policy for seamless electromobility. It requires government-industry collaboration, incentivizing production, building a charging network, and ensuring affordable clean energy.

This comprehensive approach involves all government levels, academia, and automakers, covering manufacturing, market adoption, and charging expansion.

Implementing such a policy not only establishes Mexico as a global electrified vehicle leader but also significantly reduces emissions. The study estimates a potential 26.2 million-ton CO2 reduction by 2030, a 66% increase.

A comprehensive electromobility policy could see eco-friendly vehicles at 39% of total light vehicle sales by 2030, compared to 19% without support.

Mexico’s charging infrastructure, with 1,336 stations and 3,206 connectors, needs expansion to encourage adoption.

AMIA emphasizes unified policies to benefit Mexican families and commits to clean energy integration, ready to collaborate with all stakeholders.
