The Time Is Right To Go Electric

21 June 2021

The South Australian Greens have called on the State Government to announce a comprehensive Electric Vehicle strategy for the state, ahead of tomorrow’s state budget.

“Yesterday’s announcement from the NSW government that they will waive stamp duty and provide rebates on electric cars is an important step towards decarbonising the state economy,” said SA Greens spokesperson for Manufacturing and Industry, Robert Simms MLC.“

We need to do what we can to support electric vehicles in Australia and to create the jobs that come from that here in South Australia.

“Offering incentives to increase the uptake of electric vehicles is essential if we are serious about combatting climate change.“

The Greens continue to oppose the Electric Vehicle tax. The future is electric mobility, alternative fuels and public transport–and it’s time for the state government to invest in a cleaner, greener future for South Australia,” Mr Simms concluded.
