For cold regions of Russia, it is also possible to install fuel-based interior heating.

In the 2023 year there will be a presentation of utility electric machines of completely domestic production. The degree of localization will reach % and above. We will start selling these electric vehicles, and not only in the Crimea , — said Demuria.
