Zero Emission Bus Rapid-deployment Accelerator (ZEBRA)


The ZEBRA partnership aims to deploy electric buses and pioneer the adoption of electric vehicles in transportation systems across Latin America

Investing in Impact

P4G has invested US $ 1,714,676 in this partnership through two rounds of scale-up funding in 2018 and 2020. 

The ZEBRA Partnership has secured commitments of US $424.5 million to date raising the region e-bus deployments to 460 between 2018-2020. In 2020, the partnership announced commitments from top e-bus manufacturers and investors for innovative financing models to accelerate an e-bus transition in Latin America. The partnership is working to secure a US $ 1 billion investment to deploy more than 3,000 electric vehicles in four Latin America cities.

With P4G’s multi-level approach to national and regional engagement to scale financial solutions across Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico, the impact potential for the 2020-2022 period is projected to reach US $1.6 billion in investment value and 3,600 e-buses procured in ZEBRA’s core and catalytic cities including Santiago, Mexico City, São Paulo and Medellín.
