Achieving a balance between mobility and environmental conservation is one of the main challenges for modern society, especially for countries like Costa Rica that seek to achieve carbon neutrality in the medium term and whose history places it as one of the pioneer countries in environmental issues.

Acquiring an electric vehicle is one of the most attractive options for many enthusiasts of the green movement. In Costa Rica, imports of these vehicles have grown steadily over the last three years, placing the country in the top 10 of the Latin American countries with the highest number of imports in 2019, according to OBELA.

However, since this is an emerging market, the actions promoted by the government, private companies, and entities such as the Inter-American Development Bank are crucial to achieving the coverage goals and an adequate transition of the automotive plant from gasoline to electricity. One of these actions is creating points with fast chargers that will provide accessibility and peace of mind to those drivers who have already purchased or wish to opt for an environmentally friendly vehicle.

On December 9, was announced the inauguration of a new national network of fast chargers for electric vehicles. They are located in strategic points such as Garabito, Limón, Turrialba, Pérez Zeledón, Palmar Norte, Ciudad Neilly, Naranjo, La Cruz, San Ramón, Uvita, Sámara, Las Juntas, Caballo Blanco, Guápiles, Dominical and Liberia, completing electrical routes to all regions of the country: south and north, the Caribbean, Guanacaste and the Central Pacific.

With this new network, the country manages to position itself as one of the regional leaders in electric mobility, with a total of 164 fast charging points.

There are 28 new fast chargers installed by the ICE and whose maximum capacity is 100 kilowatts. They allow plugging CHAdeMO, CCS1, and GB / T connectors, standards for American, Chinese, European, Japanese, and Korean vehicles.

With this new network, the country manages to position itself as one of the regional leaders in electric mobility, with a total of 164 fast-charging points. This assures users the possibility of quick loading for their vehicles anywhere in the country. You can found the complete map of the charging points can at www.grupoice.com

The effort made by all parties responds to compliance with Law 9518 on Incentives and Promotion for Electric Transportation, which declares all actions for the promotion of electric, public, and private transportation of public interest.

This transition process will give the country advantages in preserving the environment, clean energy development, and even considerable savings by reducing fossil fuel consumption and importing. Electric vehicles’ owners’ benefits include tax exemptions, privileges in some parking spaces, and exceptions to the vehicle restriction.
