Will electric cars be introduced in Georgia? Talks in this regard already took place under the previous government. A special commission has begun working on purchasing State vehicles. Member of the commission and head of the Chancellery Maia Tskitishvili has stated that the document regarding the purchase, distribution and replacement of the vehicles for various State departments will be formed over the next couple of months. However, no specific car models have been chosen at this stage, and there have been no negotiations with any car company yet. According to Ms. Tskitishvili, the establishment of the special commission became necessary due to the absence of appropriate regulations and the existence of questions from the public in this regard. She adds that the new regulations will initially apply to the Parliament and the State departments, but could be expanded to include the local authorities in the future.
In 2011, negotiations took place between the Ministry of the Economy and Renault with regards to the introduction of electric cars in Georgia. Today, the State Chancellery does not rule out the establishment of such a service in the country, but states that the appropriate infrastructure is absent here at this time.
