Earlier, EcoPolitic wrote, that in Ukraine, from January to June 2023, 12.6 thousand electric vehicles (BEVs) were added to the carbon-neutral transport fleet, which is three times more than in 2022.
As EcoPolitic previously reported, in 2022, sales of electric vehicles worldwide increased and accounted for about 10% of the total market, thanks to significant growth in China and Europe.
