This was announced by the Vice-President of the European Commission Maros Shevchovic.

According to the vice-president of the European Commission, Jarosh Shevchovich, the countries of the European Union will be able to provide their car manufacturers with a sufficient number of batteries by 2025. It is noted that only European components will be used in the production of batteries.

Currently, about 80% of battery factories for electric vehicles and hybrids are located in China. However, in the coming years, production facilities in Europe will begin to expand very rapidly. It is reported that 15 relevant factories are already under construction in the EU.

Thus, by 2025 the European Union will be able to produce up to 6 million batteries for electric cars annually. It is also expected that by this time about 13 million environmentally friendly cars will be driving on the roads of the Old World. It is noted that in December Brussels will offer its own standards for the production of batteries.
