Mexico’s first public electric vehicle charging stations were officially opened on Tuesday January 13th, 2015, at four Wal-Mart stores in Mexico City and the State of Mexico.
The stations were installed through an alliance of three businesses and the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE): BMW Group provided the chargers, Schneider Electric carried out the electrical installation, Wal-Mart provided the space and the cost of the charges and CFE is supplying the power.
There is no charge for consumers to “fill ‘er up” at the stations, which are located within the parking facilities at Wal-Mart supercenters in Interlomas, Toreo, Perisur and Taxqueña.
They are the first of 30 such stations that are planned for the Valley of Mexico this year, said BMW’s marketing director Laura Crespo, whose firm had its i3 electric car on hand for a demonstration.
The i3 and Nissan’s electric vehicle, the Leaf, became available in Mexico in 2014.
Both vehicles will get about 130 kilometers on a full charge and have a maximum speed of about 150 km/h.
The federal government estimates there are currently about 200 electric vehicles in operation in Mexico, a figure it expects will increase.
