The electrification of cargo trucks and fleets in Mexico is well underway.
Large companies in the country, from different economic sectors, are betting on electromobility by replacing their electric combustion fleets with electric units.
Their main objective is to meet the ambitious carbon emission reduction goals set in their sustainability strategies, which are reviewed by their creditors, but also to mitigate their fossil fuel costs.
Among the companies that replaced their units are Cemex, Sigma and Bimbo.
In the case of Cemex, it acquired a first fleet of electric cars for its sales personnel in Monterrey.
The sedan-type vehicles have a range of up to 400 kilometers per charge and have an engine capable of developing 215 horsepower, which is considerably more powerful than the average for their segment.
In July, Sigma Alimentos also began a pilot program of 19 100 percent electric utility and last-mile distribution vehicles.
The new units circulate in Nuevo León, Jalisco, Valle de México and Veracruz and join the fleet of hybrid and compressed natural gas units that the company already has in operation for the delivery of its products.
In the case of Bimbo, the company announced that it will acquire one thousand and one more electric delivery vehicles for its fleet in Mexico, bringing the total to 2,300 units, which will be assembled in the State of Mexico.
