Element Fleet Management Mexico and EV specialized companies such as BYD and Enel are jointly working toward electromobility.
Electromobility continues to develop in Mexico thanks to the joint efforts between Element Fleet Management, BYD, and Enel to offer EV fleets.
These EV fleets will be focused on decarbonization, as well as achieving Zero Emissions on cargo, secondary distribution, and last mile logistics. According to World Bank data, carbon emissions from the transportation sector have increased by up to 20% since 2010.
As such, Element Fleet Management Mexico (EMT), Chinese EV manufacturer Build Your Dreams (BYD), and Enel (a company focused on supplying electricity generated by clean energy) are working together to increase electric options.
EMT, BYD’s supplier for the Mexican market, is offering 0.8 to 3.5-ton cargo EVs, suited for light merchandise transport.
It’s about transforming package and merchandise delivery door to door using sustainable, Zero Emission mobility solutions. “The transition to electromobility has become one of the most important transportation trends globally,” explained Manuel Tamayo, EMT Mexico’s CEO.
It’s worth remembering that Mexico still needs to take giant steps toward its promise of reducing 50% their carbon emissions by 2050. While investigating how many EVs circulate in LATAM, we discovered that Mexico trails behind Colombia and Chile.
Facing this challenge, the joint venture led by EMT, BYD, and Enel to release EV fleets is moving in the right direction, without losing focus on the long-term goal to achieve Zero Emission cargo and secondary transport.
