Dominican company will place 15,000 stations for electric cars in Mexico
Evergo, a Dominican company, is reinforcing its commitment to electric mobility in Mexico, where it plans to install 15,000 car charging stations over the next ten years, according to Daniel López, its commercial director, in an interview with EFE. “In ten years, we plan to build the largest public charging network in Mexico, with 15,000 charging stations deployed across the country, with the goal of connecting people from coast to coast and border to border,” he said. To accomplish this, he explained, the company has proposed two investment periods: the first five years will spend $200 million to build 4,000 charging points, while the next five years will spend the same amount to build 10,000 stations.
With roots in the Dominican Republic and a presence in several Latin American countries, López announced that the company plans to expand into the United States and Spain, though Mexico remains their largest market. “In Mexico, there are more than 150 electric (vehicle) models, and there is a presence of the automotive industry, an extremely important manufacturing footprint that is now beginning its conversion to electrification,” he claimed. According to the Mexican Association of the Automotive Industry (AMIA), the automotive industry is important in Mexico because it accounts for nearly 4% of the national GDP and 20.5% of the manufacturing GDP, more than any other sector.
According to the National Institute of Statistics and Geography, the sale of electric and hybrid vehicles increased gradually to 5,772 units in November, 53% more than in the same month in 2021. (Inegi).
