As he said, the Moscow authorities plan to launch a Russian platform for producing electric vehicles in two or three years. This is in line with the words of the general director of the “Moskvich” plant, Dmitry Pronin. He said that by 2025 the plant plans to make its own platform for producing electric vehicles.
