EV Rebates in Australia?

07 . 7 . 23|Cars EV rebates in australia

As the country is looking to reduce the number of overall emissions it is no surprise that EVs (Electric Vehicles) are getting more and more popular. Although EVs are getting more popular, they only accounted for 3% of new car sales last year. So, is the Australian government doing anything to incentivise more people to buy EVs?

Here we answer the question, What are the EV Rebates in Australia?


EV Incentives in Queensland

  • A $3000 rebate for new EVs that cost up to $58,000
  • Electric and hybrid vehicles receive a discount on stamp duty with a rate of $2 per $100 with sales valued at $100,000 and under, and $4 per $100 if it’s over that value. This is compared to a stamp duty of up to $6 per $100 for higher-emission vehicles.
