The Romanian authorities are making superhuman efforts in the hope of modernizing the Romanian fleet. Beyond the local initiatives, however, our country has assumed this aspect before the authorities in Brussels, through PNRR.
In addition to Rabla Clasic and Rabla Plus, there will be another Rabla program in Romania. The latter will borrow a mechanism introduced at the level of Sfântu Gheorghe locality and will transpose it at national level. It is about scrapping old cars for a premium “of at least 3000 lei”. The difference with other existing Rabla initiatives is that the money does not come with the obligation to purchase another car. You can do whatever you want with them. The initiative will start on July 1, 2022.
New scrap, alternative to old scrap
“We are coming up with another program that will start on July 1 if all goes well and we manage to get along with the local public authorities. A local “Scrap” program that will take hundreds of thousands of old cars out of circulation. We will provide a premium of at least 3,000 lei for scrapped cars without the obligation to buy new cars. This morning I had a discussion with Minister Cseke (Cseke Attila, Minister of Public Works Development and Administration, no.) About the national network of charging stations.
Here, the good news also comes from the Ministry of Development, because from there over 15,000 charging stations will be financed by 2026, through PNRR (National Recovery and Resilience Plan, no.). Today, we put in public consultation the Guide for the next call for projects from the local public authorities for normal or low power stations “, mentioned the Minister of Environment, Tanczos Barna, quoted by Agerpres.
The government official also expressed his enthusiasm for the Romanians’ interest in electric cars, provided that they have a place to charge them. “I am convinced that in the medium and long term, there will be a need for many stations in the residential area, where during the night, in the parking lots next to the blocks of flats, electric cars can be charged. We have a very clear vision and a very well thought out plan to support this industry, this revolution by which the Romanian car fleet will be radically changed in a few years “, concluded the Minister of Environment.
