According to data from the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI), there were 36 million registered vehicles in Mexico in 2022.
This represents an increase of 5.2% compared to 2021. The number of private cars registered in Mexico reached 28.5 million in 2022, which represents 79% of the total registered vehicles. The number of registered motorcycles also increased, reaching 5.8 million in 2022.
Mexico City is the entity with the highest number of registered vehicles, with 3.7 million. They are followed by the State of Mexico , with 3.3 million, and Jalisco , with 2.3 million.
The growth of the vehicle fleet in Mexico is due to several factors, including:
—The increase in the purchasing power of the population
—The growth of the urban population
—The improvement of road infrastructure
The growth of the vehicle fleet has important implications for the environment and urban mobility. Road transportation is responsible for a significant portion of greenhouse gas emissions in Mexico. Additionally, increased vehicle traffic can contribute to congestion and air pollution in cities.
The proposal also seeks to promote more equitable access to these spaces for those who carry out activities in the aforementioned establishments. The initiative is expected to generate a positive impact on both the local economy and the consumer experience while easing the financial burden associated with parking in these locations. The discussion and vote on this initiative promises to generate an intense debate in the Chamber of Deputies in the coming weeks.
