InVenture states: The initiatives to stimulate purchases of electric cars are coming, told the head of Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine Vladimir Omelyan. The ministry wishes to provide subsidies on purchases of electric cars and start domestic production of EV (electric vehicles). The share of electric cars is set to reach 15% of the total number by 2020. To make this true, the government will have to abolish import VAT and other charges, as well as cancel pension fund levy upon first registration of a EV, considering ecological issues in the take. Such approaches will reduce prices for EV by more than 21%, according to the estimates by Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine. At this, Ukrainians will be able to receive a sort of down payment compensation too. The ministry expects three new electric car producers to enter Ukrainian market in 2017.
