Import duty

Last updated: 5 November 2017
Back in 2015, Russia lowered the import duty on EVs from 17% to 0% for light passenger vehicles and from 15% to 5% for trucks. These lower import duties were cancelled in September 2017 and the government has no plans to reduce them again, Russia’s Trade and Industry Ministry has confirmed, given the government’s policy to encourage localised production of such vehicles instead.
