From January to September, 558 electric vehicles were imported to Uzbekistan, the State Statistics Committee said in a report.
This is 7 times more than in the first 9 months of 2020 – then only 82 units of electric cars were imported into the country.
In total, since the beginning of the year, Uzbeks have purchased electric vehicles worth $10.5 million. The bulk of imports came from China – 499 units, followed by Turkey (24 cars) and Lithuania (13 cars).
Sales peaked in July. Then 164 cars were brought into the country – almost the same as in the previous 3 years. After that, the interest began to decline – 69 electric vehicles were sold in August, and another 57 in September.
