Limited EV Models Available in Australia
A lack of direct government incentives has led to a reluctance by manufacturers to bring their vehicles down under. There are a limited number of pure BEV models available in Australia.
The current incentives that do exist are a small bonus incentive in the luxury car tax, a reduction of $100 on car registration in Victoria and a reduction in stamp duty in the ACT.
It would seem we are just about the only developed country in the world without direct incentives.
The following models are available:

Although we don’t cover hybrid vehicles on this site, there are some good models such as the PHEV Mitsubishi Outlander that will travel 50kms on pure electric before the ICE engine kicks in.
Selling price is currently around the $28,000 mark for 2014 & 2015 models.
