Australia’s National Electric Vehicle Strategy

The Australian Government has announced its National Electric Vehicle (EV) Strategy.  

The strategy paves the way for greater EV affordability, access to charging stations, and a massive reduction in emissions. Initiatives also focus on expanded EV availability and options for buyers.

The strategy was informed by public consultation, with more than 1,500 individuals and over 200 organisations provided feedback.

Next steps

The state and territory governments have agreed to 6 key areas of collaboration with the Australian Government to enable the transition to EVs:

  • National standards
  • Data sharing
  • EV affordability
  • Remote and regional EV charging infrastructure
  • Fleet procurement
  • Education and awareness.
