Opportunities for Electric Vehicles in Australia

The Electric Vehicle Council has undertaken significant research and industry engagement to develop a strong understanding of the barriers preventing mass market uptake of electric vehicles in Australia. Opportunities for the advancement of electric vehicles in Australia fall into four categories.

Affordable vehicles

Vehicles that are price competitive with existing alternatives, through an increase in market sales and incentives.

Clear regulatory framework

Vehicle emissions standards and regulations that encourage manufacturers to import electric vehicles to the Australian market – and encourage industry and consumer to purchase them.

Model choice

A variety of models, suited to industry and consumer needs.

Consumer awareness

Raising awareness of the benefits and operating requirements of electric vehicles.

Electric Vehicle Council activities

In response, the Electric Vehicle Council, together with it’s members co-ordinates a range of activities to overcome these barriers, including:

Advocacy and research

Bringing together the voices of corporate, government, academic and community stakeholders to jointly advance Australia’s electric vehicle market, and the customer value proposition.

Industry co-ordination

Advising and fostering relationships to aggregate demand and supply, and raise consumer awareness.

Harnessing innovation

The Council supports efforts to research and develop our understanding of the Australian electric vehicle ‘eco-system’.
