The Ministry of Economic Development has the first version of the concept for the development of the electric vehicle market. According to the document, in the next 3 years, during testing, a little more than 31 billion rubles will be allocated from the budget for the development of electric transport. The entire program is calculated up to 2030, and the costs for it may amount to 418 billion. At the same time, 153,5 billion will be allocated from the budget and extra-budgetary funds.
Statistics show that the electric car market in our country is almost non-existent today. The share of such vehicles accounts for only 0,1% of total sales in 2020. The Ministry of Economic Development suggests that thanks to the target program, this figure will be raised to 1,7% by the end of 2022. At the end of the term of the initiative, electric transport should occupy up to 15% of the Russian automotive market. At the same time, the number of such vehicles in the country as a whole will be at least 1,5 million units.
At the first stage, which they want to carry out until 2023, several regions, including the capital, will receive money for the development of electric transport. This list also includes Sochi, Kazan, Sevastopol and Kaliningrad. By the way, Kazan got into the pilot regions because a new toll federal highway M-12 will pass through the Republic of Tatarstan, which will pass through the whole country, from the western borders to China.
According to the plan developed by the ministry, more than 20 charging stations will be built. But for these purposes, regional budgets will spend 000 billion, and the federal treasury will spend 3,2 billion. This number of stations is due to the fact that for every 13 vehicles powered by electric traction there will have to be 10 station, this is in settlements. For federal highways, the calculation is as follows: one station for every 1 km.
The implementation will be carried out by a consortium led by KamAZ. To stimulate the development of this project, officials are already preparing a number of measures to restrict the import of cars, although at the moment not a single electric car is produced in the country.
