This opportunity will be provided to them as part of an experiment being launched by the Russian Ministry of Economic Development together with the Avtodor company on behalf of Andrey Belousov, First Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation. It will last until the end of 2023. Based on the results of the experiment, a decision will be made to extend it, Rossiyskaya Gazeta was told in the press service of the Ministry of Economic Development.

Only federal toll roads participate in the experiment. It will be possible to use an electric car on the highways M-1 “Belarus” (including “Odintsov Bypass”), M-3 “Ukraine”, M-4 “Don”, M-11 “Neva”, M-12 Moscow – Nizhny Novgorod – Kazan, Central Ring Road (TsKAD). So, on the high-speed western diameter in St. Petersburg, on toll roads in the Pskov region and other regional routes, the transponder will not work. Currently, the federal toll highways M-11 and M-4 are equipped with recharging points, and the M-12 highway will be soon.

The nearest gas station on the M-11 is on the verge of possibilities. 387 km with a possible mileage of 400 km

What do you have to do to drive an electric car on a toll road for free? First, buy or re-register a transponder. In any case, you will have to call the point of sale of these devices. It is worth considering that buying a transponder now will cost quite a bit – 3-3.5 thousand rubles. Against a thousand a year ago. The price increase is related to the electronic devices sewn into them. Perhaps, when its production is established in Russia, the devices will be cheaper.

A specific car with a specific number will be linked to the transponder. You will not be able to drive on this device for free in another car. Moreover, if such a fact is recorded, not only the owner of a car with an internal combustion engine will receive a bill, but also the owner of an electric car will lose the privilege of free travel.

Therefore, the authorities are trying to popularize electric vehicles. But let’s count. “Moskvich 3” costs almost 2 million rubles with a gasoline engine. “Moskvich 3e” is already worth 3.5 million rubles. For free travel on toll roads, that price difference simply can’t be made up. Let’s see where electric cars will go on turnpikes. The nearest electric gas station from the M-11, which is Moscow – St. Petersburg, is at km 387. This is almost at the level of the average electric car. They usually have a mileage of 400 km.
