Buyers of Russian electric cars will be given a discount of up to 25%

Buyers of electric cars produced in Russia will be able to get a discount of up to 25%, the Ministry of Economic Development and the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia have made such a decision.

"Maxim Reshetnikov, Minister of Economic Development of Russia, together with Alexander Morozov, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, have agreed on the conditions for getting a discount on electric cars. The maximum size of the discount for buyers - 25% (that is 625 thousand rubles from the indicative cost of the car in 2.5 million rubles). The discount will be available for electric cars that are localized in Russia. For example, the discount will apply to the purchase of electric cars of large assembly, including those with imported batteries, until the end of 2023," the government said.

When buying an electric vehicle in the period from 2024 to 2025 the discount will apply to the purchase of electric cars of small-knot assembly (welding, body painting) or for electric cars with a domestic battery, while in the period from 2026 to 2030 - when buying an electric car of small-knot assembly with the mandatory presence of a domestic battery.

As specified in the government, it is planned to put into operation about 2.9 thousand "fast" charging stations by 2024, and by 2030 their number will grow to 27 thousand. The working group estimates that implementation of the concept will lead to creation of at least 39 thousand high-performance jobs by 2030, attracting about 600 billion rubles of private investment, as well as additional budget revenue of more than 200 billion rubles.
