The State of Electric Vehicles in Australia — Second Report

report cover

On the back of global trends, media interest and growing consumer awareness at home, Australia’s electric vehicle industry grew slightly last year, according to this new report, released by the Electric Vehicle Council and ClimateWorks Australia. But this second ‘State of electric vehicles’ report also notes Australia is lagging behind the rest of the world and there are several opportunities to improve uptake, including a supportive policy environment through regulatory, financial and non-financial policies and incentives; and the introduction of light vehicle CO2 emissions standards (over 80 per cent of the world auto market already has such standards; Australia is one of few developed countries that does not). It also notes government at all levels could use their greater purchasing power to encourage broader uptake of EVs.
