Mobility is being transformed around the world by technological innovations and new policy frameworks. New urban mobility models based on shared and autonomous driving, coupled with rapidly declining battery costs, are expected to lead to mass uptake of electric vehicles. Thanks to declining manufacturing costs and lower fuel and maintenance costs, electric buses and other vehicle fleets are already generally cheaper than conventional vehicles. Innovative policy tools, such as green taxes and the imposition of emissions-free zones in city centers, as well as commitments by global automakers to increase production of electric vehicles, are encouraging their uptake around the world. The transition to electric mobility is, in turn, leading to a spike in demand for lithium and copper, key elements for batteries. These global trends have profound implications for mobility in Chile and the rest of Latin America. Read more.
