New Resource - Technical Evaluation of Battery Electric Bus Potential in Mexico City and Leon, Mexico

This report examines the potential for transit bus electrification in Mexico City and León, Mexico, using modeling to identify opportunities for the technology to be deployed.

Clean, advanced vehicle technologies, such as battery electric buses (BEBs), can contribute to fewer traffic emissions, improved air quality and public health, economic development opportunities, and a better quality of life for city inhabitants This report examines the potential for transit bus electrification in Mexico City and León, Mexico. The analysis indicates that BEBs currently exist to fulfill the selected route requirements in Mexico City and León while also producing fewer CO2 emissions than conventional diesel buses and using energy more efficiently. The slow speeds and frequent stops that characterize these three routes—which are quite common in other dense, congested cities worldwide— make them particularly conducive to electrification.
