Electromobiles from Kiev start to Monte Carlo

In Ukraine, for the first time starts the annual marathon of eloctoromobiles and will be held from 3 to 10 June 2015 on the route Kiev - Monte Carlo.

“After several years of holding this marathon the idea came to us. We appealed to the Prince of Monaco Albert II with a proposal to hold this marathon in Ukraine in the year 2015 for the first time, and he agreed”, - said the Honorary Consul of Monaco in Estonia, director of the rally on eloctoromobiles Jüri Tamm at a press-conference in UNIAN, on the result of which a memorandum on cooperation between the Ministry of Ecology of Ukraine and the Honorary Consulate of Monaco in Estonia was signed.

According to Mr. Tamm, the marathon of eloctoromobiles from Ukraine through the countries of Europe will not only help to promote electric transport, but also to strengthen the ties between the regions and to help Ukraine integrate into the European community.

“We wish that thanks to this race the closer ties between the countries, regions and cities appeared. The role of this race is to make positive emotions, new knowledge, integrate Ukraine into Europe”, - said Tamm. He also said that the route of this unique run (except Kyiv) will also be held through Bucha, Rivne and Lviv.

As noted the present at the press-conference Minister of Ecology Igor Shevchenko, such activities can promote electric transport in Ukraine, improve the environment and reduce the country's dependence on oil imports. “Electromobiles do not pollute the environment. I am therefore pleased to support the process of moving the ideas of promotion these cars in Ukraine”.

At the opening of the marathon was invited by the president of Green Cross Ukraine Maksym Tymoshenko, who together with the mayor of Kiev Vitaliy Klitschko opened a marathon and made a welcoming speech to the participants of the marathon: “In the face of rapid population growth in the whole world the energy security is becoming one of the world's major problems. Energy of the future will combine traditional and "new" forms of energy - wind, solar, hydrogen. For now electromobiles are not very popular, but they are the future. After all, they use an inexhaustible resource and absolutely eco-friendly”.

According to UNIAN, the number of electromobiles in Ukraine amounts to several hundreds. According to experts, the reason for the lack of demand of Ukrainians on ecological transport is its price; they are several times more expensive than gasoline counterparts. At the same time, the global market for electromobiles is growing rapidly. Only by the end of 2014, sales of electromobiles in Europe grew by 36.6% - to 75.331 thousand units.

Closure of the marathon is scheduled for June 10, 2015 in Monte-Carlo, with the participation of the Honorary Consul of Monaco in Estonia Jüri Tamm.
