A National Strategy for Electric Vehicles

The National Strategy for Electric Vehicles will ensure the transition to electric vehicle technology and infrastructure is planned and managed, so that all Australians can access the benefits of the latest technology.

Greater electric vehicle uptake could mean cleaner air, better health, smarter cities, lower transport costs, and lower greenhouse gas emissions.

The Strategy will coordinate action across government, industry and the community to address barriers to uptake and ensure Australia reaps the benefits of new vehicle technology.

The Strategy will build on the current work of the Ministerial Forum on Vehicle Emissions and the COAG Transport and Infrastructure Council. It will complement grants from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) and finance from the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC).
