The Vladimir region has entered the pilot project to create infrastructure for electric transport. In late December 2021, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed an order specifying the territories where charging stations will be installed.
The government has identified 16 territories and one highway, where electric cars will be able to recharge. The pilot project will start in 2022 and will last until 2024.
“When selecting the territories, we took into account When selecting the territories their location along the busiest highway M-4 “Don” and the highway Moscow – Kazan which is under construction” was taken into consideration, – informs on the website of the government.
The construction of electric charging stations will start in Krasnodar region, Tatarstan, the Crimea and Sevastopol, as well as in Leningrad, Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod and Sakhalin regions. The federal highway M-4 “Don” will be used.
The Vladimir Region will also take part in the second phase in 2023. Together with the region-33 charging stations will be built in Voronezh, Kaliningrad, Lipetsk, Rostov, Tula regions, in the Primorsky and Stavropol Territories, the Chuvash Republic, in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
According to the “road map” for the development of electric transport approved by the government, by 2030 the share of electric vehicles shall reach 10% of the total. By that time about 72 thousand charging stations will be launched in the country. Recall that in summer 2021 it was reported that the Vladimir region will be allocated money to install 80 charging stations for electric vehicles.
