Mexico will receive investment for car battery production in 2023
MEXICO – By the fourth quarter of next year, production of electric car batteries could begin in Mexico with Korean, Chinese and U.S. investments, informed Marcelo Ebrard, minister of Foreign Affairs (SRE).
"We have already prepared for 2023 investment from South Korean and Chinese companies and a program agreed with the United States to start producing batteries in Mexico, hopefully in the third or fourth quarter of next year," explained Ebrard.
He commented that for now it is not possible to give figures about investments because it depends on the companies' decisions.
