During the “Direct Line”, Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke about the environmental prospects of electric vehicles.
If we talk about improving the environmental situation in this area, we need to switch to gas engine fuel and stimulate the development of this direction throughout the world. There are questions here, primarily related to the organization of gas stations. Gazprom is doing this.
According to Putin, coal is the most popular resource for electricity production in the world. For Russia, the main source is gas, which is “more environmentally friendly than coal.”
The president was upset by the fact that Russia, being one of the world’s leading producers of gas, lags behind other countries in terms of the number of gas engine filling stations.
For this reason and other reasons, he proposed to develop the gas-engine industry. And do not switch to electric cars.
