General Motors Mexico has announced a strategic partnership with Tesla aimed at bolstering the electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure in Mexico. The collaboration, unveiled during the General Motors Mexico Annual Distributor Convention marking its 89th year of operations in the country, aims to accelerate the adoption of EVs among Mexican consumers.

Under this initiative, General Motors Mexico, led by President and CEO Francisco Garza, plans to deploy 1,000 charging points across Mexico in collaboration with Tesla. This ambitious project is seen as a pivotal step towards establishing leadership in the electric vehicle market in Mexico.

It is also expected to facilitate Tesla’s increased sales in the region, leveraging its established reputation and success with models like the Model Y and Model 3, which have seen significant popularity in recent years.

Speaking at the convention, Francisco Garza highlighted the company’s commitment to technological innovation and sustainability, emphasizing that the investment in the charging infrastructure forms part of a broader $1 billion commitment to enhance manufacturing capabilities and support the transition to electric mobility.

General Motors Mexico is already offering electric models like the Cadillac Lyriq, with plans to introduce the Equinox, Chevrolet Blazer, and Cadillac Optiq later this year. The partnership with Tesla will include the integration of Tesla’s charging connectors in GM electric vehicles starting from 2025, enhancing compatibility and accessibility for EV users across the country.

Carlos de la Mora Alonso, General Motors Mexico Electric Vehicle Product Manager, underscored the importance of expanding the charging network, noting that it will be operational by August-September 2025.

Additionally, General Motors is collaborating with the Mexican government to implement incentives aimed at further encouraging the adoption of electric vehicles nationwide.
