To promote electric cars, the import of diesel and gasoline cars would be banned by 2030,
under a bill of the Infrastructure Ministry. A ban on imports of used diesel cars would start earlier, on Jan. 1 2027. This year, about 7,000 new and used electric cars are expected to be imported into Ukraine, about the same number as last year. This would represent 1.4% of the 500,0000 cars expected to be imported this year.
