From January to November 2018, Ukrainians imported and registered more than 7,100 electric vehicles, according to the Ministry of infrastructure, as reported by Ukrainian tech blog AIN.UA.
Just over 2,500 cars were registered in 2017. In total, some 11,000 electric vehicles were registered in Ukraine as of late 2018.
Such cars where not subject VAT and excise duty in import operations. Thus, last year, the cost of an electric vehicle in Ukraine was 17% lower than a regular car. In November 2018, the authorities extended these incentives for another four years, i.e. until the end of 2022.
