Electric Vehicles

Inquiry

The inquiry on Electric Vehicles (EVs) is examining the importance of the decarbonisation of transport and transition to EVs to secure Net Zero targets.  This inquiry seeks to understand how the Government will achieve its upcoming 2030 and 2035 deadlines for the phase out dates for non-zero emission vehicles, as well as exploring the main obstacles and barriers to meeting these targets. The inquiry will focus on passenger cars and explore what steps could be taken by government to make the transition as easy and accessible as possible both for consumers and businesses involved in meeting market demand, while also assessing the opportunity costs and benefits of encouraging and delivering a greater uptake of EVs.
