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.
