Welcome to the Electric Vehicle Council 🚘⚡

We are the national body representing the electric vehicle industry in Australia.

Representing members from across the value chain of the electric vehicle sector, the EVC is a trusted advisor and advocate to governments and decision makers across Australia.

Our mission is to drive investment and awareness to accelerate the electrification of transport, for a more sustainable and prosperous Australia.

As the market is emerging in Australia, our work is particularly aimed at increasing certainty for investment through policy, knowledge sharing and education.

EVs are no longer a novelty, sales double in 2023⚡

The latest Australian EV Industry Recap reveals that there are now more than 180,000 EVs on Australia's roads thanks to a more than doubling in sales in 2023.

The Electric Vehicle Council also found a majority of EVs are being sold in outer metro and regional areas.

The Council welcomes the Federal Government's plan for the introduction of a strong and robust New Vehicle Efficiency Standard which will further increase efficient vehicle options for all Australians.

Employing Australians to build batteries, chargers, cars, buses and trucks. Cutting pollution from transport and doing our fair share to combat climate change. Reducing our reliance on foreign oil by using Australian energy to move.  
We can do all of this. But not while our policies and standards lag the world.
Australia can be an Electric Vehicle powerhouse
