Government Officials with Electrical Vehicles


RA Government informs that Armenia claims to be the first country to use electric vehicles on a state level due to the Global Ecological Fund’s grant worth of 700 000 EU. 12 cars will be granted according to the number of ministers.

With this step, the officials show their concern for the environment.

The minister of Ecology Erik Grigoryan mentions that the initiative has many advantages, such as reduction of air pollution and energy dependence on imported fuel and scientific development in the sphere of electrical vehicles.

In 2018 Armenia imported 33 electric cars, however in 2019 the number is expected to double due to the new project on eliminating custom duty on the import of electric vehicles.
