Mexico’s first electric car brand built by women
“We have the right to be a part of the automotive sector – and I say ‘we’ as women. That’s why why,” said Nazareth Black, director of the electric car company Zacua, Mexico. Why did we decide to open this company to create jobs for women?”
Each vehicle is hand-built at the factory in Puebla state, central Mexico. Inside the factory, female mechanics can be seen working with male colleagues.
Currently, the company offers two different electric vehicle models, the MX2 and MX3, both of which are priced at about $29,000. The battery of the car takes 8 hours to fully charge and the car will travel nearly 160 km per charge with a maximum speed of 85 km / h.
Black said she hopes her brand will help solve major problems in traditionally male-dominated industries in Mexico, such as gender pay gaps.
“For me, this is a very important issue, because auto is an industry built primarily around the male gender. So it’s important to start transforming this industry. I’m happy to be able to help spread the message that the issue of gender disparity exists and it must be addressed,” said Nazareth Black.
