According to him, power production demands resources and if coal for this purpose is widely used, then all positive ecological effect from electric vehicles will be lost. "I consider a duty again to warn against excessive optimism concerning prospects of electric vehicles. Though we can only welcome development of environmentally friendly transport, it should be noted that the cost of power infrastructure and costs of operation of the electric transport still strongly depend on the state subsidies", - he has told, having noted that "it is necessary to remember that power production demands resources and if coal for this purpose is widely used, then all positive ecological effect from electric vehicles will be lost". Sechin has added that "producers of modern electric vehicles create to themselves advertizing and media noise". "In particular, recently the Securities Commission of the USA has found the head of the Tesla company Elon Musk guilty of corporate fraud and introduction of shareholders to delusion. As a result capitalization of the company consistently falls. It is unlikely shareholders of the company want to provide development of her business at the price of decrease in the income" — the head of Rosneft has added. Sechin has specified that "in the long term there are fears that the policy in the field of climate change limiting combustion of fossil fuel, or a little significant progress in the field of rechargeable batteries are capable to accelerate considerably achievement of peak of demand for oil".
