5th place. The electric vehicles. From the beginning of 2017, the electric vehicles were exempted from import duty and delivery began to grow. But the official importers yet not too in a hurry to master the new market. Later it became clear why. It turns out that after the audit elektronaradim stations, only half of them meet the standards, such as Renault. However, during the year, the number of models of electric vehicles significantly increased. Their new products showed Hyundai, Renault, Citroen, But the real catalyst of the electric car market at the end of the year was the Verkhovna Rada. The deputies suddenly released electric vehicles from VAT and excise duty, which will inevitably lead to their cheapening a further 17%. But, it turned out that not everyone is ready to cut prices. And there will be enough electric vehicles in Europe rushing in there to our deliverers? It is obvious that the subject of electric cars will be in the Top next year.
