Siemens promotes use of electric buses in Mexico




Mexico (Notimex) – German multinational Siemens will promote the use of electric cars in Mexico as an essential means of urban transport and an option to cut down pollution.

The company has designed the “Complete Mobility” concept which it seeks to launch in Mexico.

Compared to gasoline or diesel buses, fuel consumption is 25 percent lower in electric buses, the company said, adding that in countries like Spain, some 140 million people use electric buses daily.

“At Siemens, we believe that the integration of mobility and sustainable transport is vital in urban development of main cities such as Guadalajara, Monterrey and Mexico, which in 2030 will hold 88 percent of the country’s population,” the company said.
