The Ministry of Industry and Trade considers the protection of the domestic electric vehicle market as a guarantee for its development

The adoption of protective measures in the domestic electric car market in Russia stimulates its development, said the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, Denis Manturov. “We have a piece market for electric vehicles. Until we have a developed charging infrastructure, until we establish our own affordable cars, it will remain a piece. But in order for us to develop ourselves, we must motivate producers.

Therefore, protective mechanisms must exist, otherwise there simply will be no incentive for production inside the country,” he said, answering the question about increasing the utilization fee for electric cars from 2022. Earlier it was reported that the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation proposes to increase the utilization fee for electric vehicles from the beginning of 2022 almost nine times for new cars and four times for used ones. In addition, the Eurasian Economic Commission is considering a proposal to extend zero import duties on electric vehicles to the EAEU countries until 2024, but Russia opposed this initiative.

As noted by the development director of Pragmatics Group Alexander Shaprinsky, the import of electric vehicles is still not very large, and the increase in the utilization fee and the abolition of zero duties will become an additional limiting factor for the development of this area. This will lead to higher prices and a significant drop in demand, as a gasoline equivalent (new car) will cost, if not less, then the same as a used electric car. According to Vladimir Miroshnikov, Development Director of ROLF, the efforts of the Ministry of Industry and Trade are aimed at stimulating the production of electric vehicles in Russia.

However, today one should not expect an effect from these measures, as, given the current volume of the electric vehicle market, the localization of their production is economically inexpedient for any of the world's leading auto concerns. Russian manufacturers also do not produce currently electric models that could replace cars with a traditional internal combustion engine. In turn, Tatyana Gorovaya, director of government relations at Nissan Manufacturing Rus, believes that measures aimed at increasing duties and utilization fees for electric vehicles will significantly slow down the entry of most electric models into the Russian market.

In particular, they will affect the replenishment of the market with affordable mass-produced models of electric vehicles, because they will be most affected by the negative effect of an increase in duty rates and utilization fees.
