Aleksandra Graovac from the Serbian Association of Car and Parts Importers stated that the average age of vehicles in Serbia is 17 years.
According to her, the automobile industry is a polluter, but, as she says, not one of the biggest, she writes N1.
“The automotive industry has been working for years to reduce the exhaust emissions produced by cars. That is a problem with older vehicles where the show is uncontrolled, “said Graovac in the show N1 Studio live.
He reminds that the automobile industry has committed itself to reducing exhaust emissions by 60% by 2030.
“It is very difficult to fulfill that if we do not drastically turn to the production of more environmentally friendly vehicles, that is.” vehicles with lower exhaust emissions “, she estimates.
Graovac says that the decree of the Ministry of Environment on subsidizing electric and hybrid vehicles is a positive step.
“But we still cannot expect higher sales of, say, electric vehicles because the infrastructure does not follow that part,” says Graovac, adding that the registration system also needs to be reviewed.
He adds that sales of new vehicles fell by about 25 percent, but almost the same number of used vehicles were imported to Serbia.
“Namely, imports fell by only 725 used vehicles, according to the data on the first registration,” she states.
If the regulations regarding the technical correctness of vehicles are tightened, the import of older vehicles can be reduced, says Graovac.
