Evergo to revolutionize electric mobility in Mexico with more than 15,000 charging stations planned
The largest and most sophisticated network of charging stations for electric vehicles in the region, arrives in Mexico. This groundbreaking initiative results from the majority acquisition of E-DRIVE, a leading Mexican company in infrastructure solutions for electric mobility, with an investment of USD$200 million over the next 5 years.
Mexico City, November 15th, 2022 – With an increasing number of electric vehicles on the road, the main challenge electric mobility faces is to guarantee an adequate supply of electricity that ensures range, low cost and most important, practical, efficient, and advanced charging solutions.
Evergo, the most sophisticated and largest network of electric charging stations in the region, arrives in Mexico through the acquisition of E-Drive, a leading company in providing solutions for charging electric vehicles, in order to promote electric mobility throughout the country. In the upcoming years it will offer a powerful network of more than 15,000 new public and residential charging stations to connect major Mexican areas, with an investment of USD$200 millions over the next five years.
Both companies combine their experience to expand existing residential networks with a leading-edge technology system, like “My Evergo”; a pioneering charging service for electric corporate fleets, “Evergo Fleet”; as well as the deployment of the largest and most sophisticated public charging network in the country.
Evergo Mexico offers level 2 alternating current stations of up to 20kW; and level 3 direct current chargers of up to 600kW of power. These chargers allow full charge of a vehicle in less than half an hour. Another competitive advantage offered by Evergo is that electric vehicle users will be able to connect through a common intelligent platform. All stations will be affiliated to the network used in an increasingly growing number of countries.
During the launch event, held in Mexico City, CEO and Chairman of InterEnergy Group, Rolando González-Bunster, stated: “We offer an entire ecosystem for the service of electric vehicle users, with the purpose of promoting and developing sustainable mobility and leading it towards a greener future. At the same time, the arrival of Evergo in the Mexican market interacts with our vision of facilitating this transition throughout the region, while promoting a positive impact on the environment. Our objective will result in the elimination of more than one million tons of CO2 emissions this year”.
At the same event, Daniel López, co-founder and CCO at E-DRIVE, explained: “We are very excited to work with Evergo, with the shared goal of revolutionizing electromobility in Mexico. This project will allow us to deploy the largest and most powerful network of charging stations, a move that will encourage confidence in the use of electric vehicles throughout the Mexican Republic, supported by ‘cutting-edge’ technology”.
Evergo is part of InterEnergy Group and already operates successfully in the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Panama. In these countries the company is building the largest and most sophisticated network of electric charging stations. In the upcoming year it will have a presence in Aruba, Puerto Rico, Paraguay, Uruguay and Spain.
E-DRIVE, a company that is 100% Mexican, has been in operation in the country for the past seven years. Throughout this period, it has positioned itself as the leading company in electric vehicle charging solutions, with a market share of more than 85%. It is a key supplier to those companies that lead the transportation electrification movement in Mexico.
In less than 10 years, both organizations have positioned themselves at the forefront of the electric mobility industry in each of their operating markets. Their shared vision is to promote the transition to a more sustainable mobility, through the deployment of a network of extensive and reliable charging stations.
