Укравтодор считает электромобили угрозой

Electric cars are the only threat to the road Fund, which is filled at the expense of the excise tax on fuel.

Electric cars are the only threat for contributions to the road Fund of Ukravtodor, which is replenished at the expense of the excise tax on fuel. This was stated by acting head of the company Slawomir Nowak in an interview with UKRINFORM.

“This year is 50% of the excise tax in 2019 – 75%, and in 2020 – 100%. It is known that the excise duty increases,” he said.

Novak said that if the number of electric vehicles will grow, you will need to look for other sources of Fund. “But now the funding is permanent”, he added.

Among other sources of funding are considered payment from the trucks, the penalties for overloading.

“Therefore, introduce an electronic system of weighing trucks while driving. There is a problem with overloaded trucks and there is a problem with transport security and professionalism of the representatives of transport security. So now it is necessary to think over system of penalties and introduction of an electronic system,” – said Novak.

Earlier it was reported that the number of imported to Ukraine in the first quarter of 2018 electric cars has grown three times in comparison with the same period of 2017 to 1,744 vehicles.
