Evergo wants to provide charging infrastructure for electric cars, public transportation units, bicycles and scooters to improve electromobility in Mexico. The company said it will open charging stations that will begin to operate in 2024 in Mexico City. 

In November 2022, Evergo announced a US$200 million investment to install 15,000 charging stations in Mexico. The goal of this project is to provide an adequate supply of electricity that ensures range at a low cost, boosting electromobility in Mexico, as reported by MBN. 

In January 2023, the company owned by InterEnergy Group signed an agreement with BMW to install 4,000 new chargers across the country in a five-year period, with an initial investment of US$200 million. "Over the next decade, 50% of our Premium segment will be 100% electric. Through strategic alliances, such as the one with Evergo, we maintain our vision for an electric, digital and circular future," said Diego Camargo, CEO, BMW Group Mexico.

In May 2023, Evergo doubled its investment to US$400 million to install a charging corridor across Mexican territory. Daniel López, Commercial Director, Evergo, explained that the project will be divided in four phases over a period of 10 years, focusing on urban areas, shopping centers and corridors that house companies that have acquired fleets of electric vehicles. Additionally, López noted that as the market grows, investment figures may vary.

According to Evergo, the new electric charging stations to open in 2024 will be powered by solar panels and equipped with energy storage infrastructure. They will be installed in open spaces and will offer amenities such as work, franchise and recreational areas, as well as ATMs. Moreover, they will be certified as zero-emission zones, so associated establishments will be required to comply with this condition. 

At the beginning of 2023, Evergo inaugurated a small charging station inside a shopping mall parking lot in the Benito Juarez municipality, with an investment of MX$12 million (US$712,837.5). The new stations, part of the Evergo Connect project, are expected to have 12 fast-charging dispensers to serve cars, public transportation units, bicycles and scooters in Mexico City and the metropolitan area. "We are in the process of finalizing the real estate part, selecting locations based on consumption studies and flow of electric vehicles,” shared Daniel López, Communication Director, Evergo.
