In the coming days, Mexicana Motores Limpios will start serial production on the first EVs made in Mexico. The first model is a small two seater named Zacua, with a range of up to 160 km. This year 100 vehicle models are scheduled to be made.
For 2019 the company plans to double production, as well as add a four seater to their product lineup. Furthermore, in the Puebla factory only women will be working on the cars. They build one vehicle per day.
The car will be sold as of May for about 550,000 pesos, or 29,500 dollars. The market entry of the vehicles was first planned for last November, but the earthquake on the 19th of September complicated things.
The Zacua iis only 3.06 m long, 1.56 m wide and 1.4 m high. The weight is set at 685 kg. This qualifies the car particularly for urban areas. The lithium-ion batteries allow for a 160 km range and fully charge within about 8 hours. The 34 kW motor has a top speed of around 95 km/h.
