Encouraging electric vehicle take-up

Tuesday 07 December, 2021

Applications are now open for $3,000 subsidies for those who purchase a battery electric vehicle, and subsidies of up to $2,000 will be available from early next year for those who install an EV charger.

It’s part of our sweeping reforms to help drive the take-up of zero and low emission vehicles.

The $3,000 subsidy will be available for 7,000 eligible new battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles registered in SA from Oct 28, 2021.

There will be a price cap of $68,750 (inc GST) to provide an incentive to bring lower-priced electric vehicles to the market and avoid subsidising expensive electric vehicles.

We have our sights set firmly on becoming a national leader in electric vehicle uptake and smart charging by 2025.
