Colombia, leading electric mobility in Latin America
Last year, more than 5,000 units of this class of motor vehicles were registered in Colombia, 17% of which were cars.
The commercialization of eco-friendly vehicles in Colombia registers a remarkable growth. In 2019 alone, more than 5,000 of this vehicles’ class were registered, including buses and electric motorcycles, as well as hybrid cars. Almost 1,000 units were electric cars, and the data provided by the National Association for Sustainable Mobility consolidate the country as a leader in this market in Latin America, surpassing the Dominican Republic (625), Chile (521), Costa Rica (460) and Mexico (295), which complete the Top 5 sales list.
The trend will apparently continue, as the figures for the first two months of 2020 suggest, with 349 units sold (more than the double when comparing with the same period in 2019). This performance is partly due to the tax incentives for people to start buying more electric cars and help achieve the goal of having zero emissions by 2040.
