Australia is still in the slow lane on affordable clean transport and it's costing us dearly. Now the petrol car lobby is trying to delay and weaken the roll out of a Fuel Efficiency Standard—the key policy needed to unlock affordable electric vehicles (EVs)—using tactics straight out of the fossil fuel lobby’s handbook.
This is our last chance to make a lasting impression and help neutralise EV opponents before the Federal Government makes the final decision on a Standard later this year. We need both sides of politics to see support in the regions and cities alike and ensure the petrol car lobby doesn't whip up a media frenzy to roadblock a strong Standard.
Together, we’ve gotten Fuel Efficiency Standards to the top of the political agenda. But we need to act now to get a strong Standard across the line – or risk Australia becoming a dumping ground for polluting vehicles.
