Mexico. According to Nuevo Leon Governor Samuel Garcia, Korean automaker Kia will install a new electric vehicle production plant in this state.
Through a video published on Twitter in the early hours of Monday, May 15, the regional president said that Nueva León will become the "next world hub of electromobility."
The Hyundai Motors company will join Tesla in producing electric vehicles in the state.
"There are going to be many opportunities to transform ourselves to electromobility and all these new sciences that generate wealth in a sustainable way," the governor emphasized.
Finally, García also announced that on June 6 and 7 in Mexico will be held the Mobility of the FUTURE event with Hannover Messe, the first time that this summit is held in Latin America. The participation of various electromobility companies is expected in the forum.
Samuel García Sepúlveda undertook on Monday a tour through South Korea and Taiwan with the purpose of seeking new investments for Nuevo León.
This trip comes after the Mexican government confirmed in February that Tesla will install its next Gigafactory in Santa Catarina, in the northern state, which will be the first plant in Latin America and the largest in the world.
According to the president, the plant could start the first production of electric cars in Mexico next year, after receiving the final permits for its construction.
