Mexico Set Up Working Group for Electric Transportation

Important progress continues to be made in Mexico with the aim of promoting electric mobility not only in the country, but throughout the region.

The North American Leaders Summit (NALS) was held in 2023 with the participation of the President of the United States, Joe Biden; the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau; and the President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

The meeting resulted in historic agreements to accelerate the transition to electric vehicles, reduce emissions and comply with the Paris agreements to address climate change.

A few days ago, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE) presented the Mexico-States Working Group for the Electrification of Transportation, a high-level initiative developed jointly by the Foreign Ministry and the University of California.

The project involves the participation of key players in three sectors: government, industry and academia, from both Mexico and the United States.

The objective of the initiative is to generate solutions to guarantee the coordinated transition to electromobility from a strategic perspective, which includes intersectoral and triple helix work in five major thematic areas: Innovation; Human Capital; Supplier Development; Infrastructure Development; and Governance Structures.

The announcement of the creation of the binational working group was presided over by the Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Marcelo Ebrard Casaubon, who explained that Mexico and the United States will jointly advance in the transition towards electromobility following an agreement reached at the recent North American Leaders’ Summit.

“The most relevant thing that happened at the North American Leaders Summit… is that a vision of North America was recovered,” said the Chancellor.

“Now we have a common vision, and in many fields, and this is one of them,” he added.

During his speech, Ebrard especially thanked the University of California and the state’s governor, Gavin Newsom, for their willingness towards a common plan and roadmap for the transition to electromobility.
