Electric car registrations in Ukraine doubled in 2018 to 12,333 cars. Pushing 2018 sales to 6,740 cars was a combination of tax exemptions that cut sale prices by 17%, Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan writes on Facebook. The ministry’s goal is to install 1,000 chargers this year, prioritizing parking lots. Working with the European Investment Bank, the government plans to install a network of fast-charging stations, focusing on Lviv-Kyiv-Kharkiv and Kyiv-Odesa. With Europe’s largest known deposits of lithium, Omelyan hopes the Rada will pass legislation in coming weeks to give tax breaks to lithium-ion battery manufacturers.
