Electrification of the transportation sector is widely viewed as a key component to reducing global carbon emissions. The use of electric vehicles is growing throughout Latin America, but their scale and impact remain limited. In most countries, electric vehicle sales have been low due to insufficient fiscal and regulatory incentives to offset higher costs for electric vehicles, fossil fuel subsidies that encourage oil demand, and inadequate infrastructure, such as charging stations.
The Latin America Clean Transport Forum in Mexico City will bring together representatives of government, the private sector, academia, and NGOs in Latin America to discuss successful electric mobility policies around the world and challenges and opportunities to promoting the use of electric vehicles in Latin America.
