We need affordable EVs!

Transport emissions and petrol prices are rising rapidly in Australia, but we’re still lagging behind the rest of the world on electric vehicles. The Federal Government must implement a strong New Vehicle Efficiency Standard to bring more affordable electric vehicle models to Australia, or we risk becoming a dumping ground for costly and polluting petrol cars.

Sign the petition now to call on the Federal Government to get Australia on the road to clean transport.

Dear Federal and State Energy and Transport Ministers,

Petrol prices and transport emissions are skyrocketing, but Australians are being left behind on electric vehicles, which cut pollution and are cheaper to run and maintain. 

We’re calling on you to support the following policies to help get more Australians in the driver's seat of an electric vehicle:

  1. Implementing strong, mandatory New Vehicle Efficiency Standard to bring Australia up to speed with the rest of the world. 
  2. Setting a target for 100% of new car sales to be electric by 2030.
  3. Provide additional funding for upfront EV incentives and charging infrastructure.
