All new car sales in Norway will be zero-emissions vehicles by 2025. To achieve this goal, Norway has a comprehensive electric vehicle policy. Australia has no federal electric vehicle strategy or policies and no plan for the transition from ICE vehicles.
The transport sector is the third largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in Australia, as well as one of the fastest growing. Globally, electric vehicle (EV) adoption is becoming a key component of national strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As well as decarbonising transport, EVs save consumers money, and provide societal benefits including cleaner air in cities and enhanced energy and fuel security.
