By expanding the electric vehicle fleet by more than 30% during 2021, the Mexican company Coca-Cola FEMSA already has 421 units.

The company also significantly expanded its base of electric vehicle suppliers in Latin America.

Coca-Cola FEMSA now has eight leading global suppliers and works with them to develop electrical units that meet the specifications of the bottling industry.

Through its sustainable mobility community, the company works to align the electric vehicle strategy across its operations, and develops and deploys a tool to analyze total cost of ownership and scenarios.

And to further align its operations, Coca-Cola FEMSA considers a standardized protocol to test new electric vehicle technologies -with a standard fuel efficiency indicator to measure consumption by country- and in this way reinforce and improve its migration to electric vehicles.

Thanks to these and other initiatives, the company projects that by 2030 it will have 45% of its fleet made up of electric vehicles.

In the last five years, the company has replaced its fleet with new vehicles that meet more stringent emission reduction standards.

Currently, 2,934 trucks in the primary and secondary fleets have Euro V and EPA certifications.

Thanks to this program, the company reduced its fuel consumption, emissions and maintenance costs, and reinforced its commitment to eco-efficiency before the local environmental authorities.
