Cancun, Q.R. — Several main areas in Quintana Roo will see the installation of 20 electric car charge stations.
According to Notimex, private investments will allow the state to install 20 charging stations primarily along the Cancun-Tulum highway, however stations will also be installed on Cozumel.
Tesla, the leading company in the sale of electric vehicles, is hoping to accelerate the transition to sustainable energy in conjunction with the Institute for Development and Financing of the State (IDEFIN).
This joint effort is promoting the participation of private capital in the development of an ecological corridor in order to create a sustainable transport ecosystem.
“The deployment of the infrastructure that includes a cargo network will allow users of electric vehicles to travel longer, something key to the massive use of the electric car within our entity,” stressed Bernardo Cueto Riestra, general manager of IDEFIN.
In a statement, the Institute for the Development and Financing says that this private investment allows an important step toward innovation in the development of electric mobility in Quintana Roo.
The investment by Tesla will allow Quintana Roo to have different loading sites in more than 20 locations. The areas chosen for the charging stations will include the municipalities of Solidaridad, Benito Juárez, Tulum and Cozumel.
Once installed, Quintana Roo joins other states that have already implement electric corridors within the country, with charging stations for vehicles that use electricity and set aside petroleum-based fuels.
