A massive cargo ship docked in the Chilean port of San Antonio at the end of November, carrying it its belly the first 100 electric buses from China that Chileans hope will revolutionize their public transport system.

Chile's ambitious plan to face down its capital Santiago's notorious smog problem includes the rollout of electric scooters, cars and taxis, as well as lorries for use in the mining industry. [...]

The operation and maintenance costs of an electric bus are also around 70 per cent less than those of a diesel engine, according to Chile's Ministry of Transport.
