Thematic Areas

Electric Mobility

Electric vehicles—whether scooters, cars, buses, or trains—are an attractive option across the region. Small countries such as Barbados and Uruguay have taken advantage of their limited geographical area to put a national infrastructure in place for charging electric vehicles. Among big cities, Santiago, Chile, has led the way on electric buses; in Colombia, Bogotá, Medellin, and Cali are all expanding their fleets. Costa Rica, for its part, is seeking to capitalize on its virtually 100% renewable power grid by having more of its public transportation run on electricity. Many countries have adopted tax incentives to promote electric mobility.
