Electric vehicles, due to the fact that they are environmentally friendly, have been recognized in the world as cars of the future, and in Montenegro, there were 74 vehicles of this type registered in 2018, said the representatives of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for CdM. The necessary infrastructure and public charging stations are gradually being created, and the introduction of a new station is a huge step towards increasing environmental awareness in Montenegro.
