Creating conditions for the production of electric vehicles in Ukraine is one of the most important goals of the Ministry of Infrastructure. This was emphasized by the Minister of Infrastructure Vladyslav Kryklii during the presentation of the first Ukrainian electric car for people with disabilities USEC yesterday, August 20.
“Without electric cars, it is difficult to imagine a modern country and urban infrastructure. Definitely, the better the Government, the Verkhovna Rada and the state as a whole promote the development of electric mobility in Ukraine, the faster this movement will progress. I am grateful to the authors of the first Ukrainian electric car for people with disabilities USEC for the implementation of a truly innovative and technological project that simultaneously removes barriers and cares for each of us, creating the necessary conditions for those who need it. The state must do everything possible to enable as many citizens as possible to afford such products. And we will create proper and modern infrastructure for this,” said the Minister of Infrastructure.
Vladyslav Kryklii noted that the Ministry would continue to fully support such important initiatives in Ukraine as the abolition of VAT and duties on the import of electric vehicles, as well as stimulate the national production of electric cars. “We plan to take a local, but extremely important initiative to help build a network of super-fast charging stations in Ukraine SuperCharge to be implemented at the expense of European funds. This will allow to improve and develop electric mobility in Ukraine even more,” the Minister added.
It should be noted that earlier the Ministry of Infrastructure initiated new amendments to the state building standards (SBS), which would allow the placement of charging stations on all public roads.
Ukrainian Social Electric Car (USEC) is a joint project of TV presenter Victoria Kiose in collaboration with Ecofactor company specialists. The Ukrainian electric car for people with disabilities was developed on the basis of the Smart and allows people with musculoskeletal disorders to move comfortably around the city. Without assistance, a person can safely enter the car as a capsule and travel independently.
