Americas Now

In the 90s, Mexico City held the unfortunate title of being the most polluted and most populated city on the planet. Since then, countless policies have been implemented to mitigate pollution and improve the air quality in the capital. However, vehicle pollutants have continued to pose a significant challenge despite these efforts, rendering many of these policies insufficient.

Introducing the latest generation of electric vehicles (EVs) offers a promising solution. These EVs are designed to drastically reduce emissions, thereby addressing one of the largest contributors to air pollution in Mexico City. The shift towards electric vehicles could be a game changer for the city’s long-standing battle against pollution.

Joel Richards reports on this potential breakthrough, exploring how electric vehicles are being integrated into Mexico City’s transportation system and the impact they could have on the city’s air quality. With advancements in technology and increasing support for sustainable practices, adopting electric vehicles may finally bring a long-awaited improvement to Mexico City’s environment.
