Additionally, a 6-year term was established for the National Government and the public transport service providers to reach a minimum of 30% of electric vehicles in its fleets. The cities with massive public transport should create public policies and actions aiming to ensure a percentage of electric vehicles on its float, and for 2035 the 100% of the purchased vehicles must be electric.
