The concept of a hybrid device in law
The so-called hybrids are cars with a gasoline and electric motor. Therefore, many questions arise about how to calculate the cost of customs clearance of a hybrid car in Ukraine. In practice, it turns out that not every model falls into this category according to the interpretation of the law.
If the installed ICE and electric motor simultaneously or in turn rotate the drive wheels during movement, the machine will be considered as gasoline upon import. This is the design in most hybrid cars: Lexus IS 300h, Toyota Prius, Toyota C-HR Hybrid, Kia Niro, Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, Chevrolet Volt.
If the internal combustion engine transmits torque only to the generator for recharging the batteries and is not connected to the drive wheels, then such a machine falls into the classification of category 8703 90 10 90: "Vehicles equipped exclusively with electric motors, others." There are very few car models of this type, the most popular example is the BMW i3 REX, which has already been discontinued.
