Electric car company Zacua opens assembly facility in Puebla
After a series of delays caused by the earthquake last September, the Mexican electric car brand Zacua inaugurated in Puebla the facility where it will assemble the M2 and M3 models that will be launched in the coming weeks.
Zacua is an initiative from Motores Limpios SAPI de CV, a company created by the owners of parking lot management firm COPEMSA. Zacua commissioned Dynamik Technological Alliance, of Spain, and Automobiles Chatenet, a France-based auto designer and manufacturer, the task of developing an electric car for the Mexican market.
Zacua invested a little more than US$ 4 million in the facility located at Parque Industrial de Puebla 2000 where it will receive the vehicles in the form of CKD kits (Complete Knock-down) for its final assembly. Its plan is to assemble 100 units during 2018 and gradually increase its pace in order to build 2,000 per year.
The two-seat units will be priced at US$ 29,000 and will have a range of 100 miles with a lithium-ion battery that takes eight hours to fully charge. The car’s maximum speed in 95 kilometers per hour.
