All-electric passenger vehicles, also known as Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs), are rapidly gaining popularity in Australia. In 2021, the number of EVs on Australian roads nearly tripled, making up approximately two per cent of total vehicle sales in the country.
There’s no stopping the electrification of electric cars on our roads. Industry experts forecast that by 2030, 40 per cent of all new car sales globally will be EVs.
In Australia, as demand continues battery electric vehicle is to grow, so too does the availability of public charging infrastructure. There are now 3,000 public EV charging points (2531 standard AC, 470 supercharge DC) to cover 7.692 million square kilometres. Thousands more will be rolled out over the next couple of years.
State governments have also started to offer financial incentives to encourage motorists to switch to EVs. These can include subsidies of up to $3,500 towards the purchase price of electric cars, as well as exemption of electric cars from stamp duty and registration fees.
There are many reasons why Australians are making the switch to EVs. Some do it for environmental reasons, while others are motivated by the lower running and maintenance costs. Whatever the reason, there’s little doubt that one day in the near future, EVs will be the norm on our roads.
