As a part of Smart City’s project, Neru, 70 electric vehicle charging stations have opened in Dushanbe.  They reportedly can simultaneously charge 140 electric vehicles.

Chargers provide power from 60 to 120 kilowatt/hour.  This means that an electric car with a 40-kilowatt battery can be fully charged in about 40 minutes.  

The location of available charging stations can be found on the website:; and you can reach them with the help of map and navigator.  

In all, more than 500 electric vehicle charging stations are planned to be established in Dushanbe.

Recall, about 230 million somonis (US$21 million) are expected to be allocated within the next five years for development of electric transport in the country.  Of this amount, 1.4 million somonis will be allocated from the national budget, 6.2 million somonis will be provided by development partners, and more than 221 million somonis will be provided by the private sector.

In Tajikistan, mostly old foreign cars are in operation and their emissions are one of the main sources of air pollution.  According to experts, gradually filling the country with electric cars could reduce air pollution.  

Tajik President Emomali Rahmon in December 2021 proposed to completely waive taxes and customs duties on imports of electric vehicles -- electric cars, electric buses, trolleybuses, etc.

He instructed the government to take measures to provide infrastructure and other necessary conditions for the use of such vehicles in the country.

The gradual increase in electricity generation in Tajikistan reportedly allows increasing the number of electricity-powered vehicles in Tajikistan.  Tajik officials say this will reduce the country's dependence on oil-exporting countries.
