Romanians will benefit from an eco-voucher worth EUR 6,500 for buying an electric car or vehicle with a zero pollution degree, according to a Ministry of Environment’s draft project which needs approval. The budget covers 100 eco-tickets.
The state also needs to implement in the following years a program which aims to install 10,000 outlets for charging electric cars. Romania has now about 50 such devices, according to Adrian Gearap, president of the Environment Fund Administration.
The number of eco-cars sold in Romania in the first quarter of the year reached 59 units. Only one of these was an electric car, while the rest were hybrids.
