A gradual transition to electric cars will happen in the next ten years, the Minister said. This process is active all around the world. Our neighbors, for example, in China, a large part of the vehicle fleet, especially in large urban areas, is translated into the buses. The Minister noted that this is a natural process which we should encourage, for example, abolishing the transport tax for electric transport, and the experience of this already. It is also necessary to improve the infrastructure of gas stations to put matching blocks, which will ensure elektronaladka. Well, roads need to be put in the appropriate state so they could move as electric vehicles and drones.
