On 18 March, the President and Shavkat Mirziyoyev signed a resolution on the implementation of an investment project for the production of electric and hybrid cars, as well as their components in Uzbekistan.

According to the document, Uzbekistan plans to establish production of hybrid and electric vehicles up to 500,000 per year.

Uzbekistan also intends to increase the level of localization of these machines to 60%.

This will create jobs for 10 thousand people. The authorities also intend to expand the list of countries that can permanently export hybrid and electric vehicles to Uzbekistan, with the exception of exporting countries identified by the Joint Investment Venture.

An important point is the protection of consumer rights: electric cars and hybrids must be of high quality and safe, and also comply with local climatic conditions.

Manufacturers or exporters are also required to provide warranty service. All automakers in Uzbekistan will have equal conditions, including receiving benefits and preferences from the state.
