Australian electric vehicle calendar

Sales of fully electric vehicles (EVs) are relatively small in Australia, but with every month that goes by they gain momentum. 

As demand grows, so too will manufacturer supply – with or without government-set transport CO2 reduction targets or incentives in place. The only issue up for debate is the speed of this uptake.
