The National Electric Vehicle Strategy sets a vision to increase the uptake of electric vehicles (EVs) to reduce our emissions and improve the wellbeing of Australians.

The Strategy sets out 3 key objectives:

  • increase the supply of affordable and accessible EVs
  • establish the resources, systems and infrastructure to enable rapid EV uptake
  • encourage increased EV demand.

Implementing initiatives under the objectives will help us deliver the following outcomes:

  • expand EV availability and choice
  • reduce road transport emissions
  • make it easy to charge EVs across Australia
  • increase local manufacturing and recycling
  • make EVs more affordable
  • reduce the cost to Australians of running their vehicles.
