Limited EV Models Available in Australia
"A lack of direct government incentives has led to a reluctance by manufacturers to bring their vehicles down under. There are a limited number of pure BEV models available in Australia.
The current incentives that do exist are a small bonus incentive in the luxury car tax, a reduction of $100 on car registration in Victoria and a reduction in stamp duty in the ACT.
It would seem we are just about the only developed country in the world without direct incentives." http://myelectriccar.com.au
We the undersigned motor vehicle users are aware of the economic and environmental impacts upon Australian consumers brought about by inadequate support for the shift to Electric Vehicles by Australian car sellers and the Australian state and federal governments.
We would like to see some positive action and a greater range of EVs and high efficiency hybrids that will enable Australia to move more rapidly to a renewable energy economy.
We are beginning to document the range of EVs currently available around the world but not introduced to the Australian market and will directly lobby car dealers, car brands, politicians and political parties until the situation changes dramatically.
