Academics assert that addressing the obstacles to the success of electric cars in Australia must be prioritized alongside emissions laws.

University researchers have outlined five steps Australia needs to take to accelerate its transition to electric vehicles (EVs) as new emissions laws approach.

Three leading academics at the University of Queensland – Dr. Kai Li Lim, Dr. Dia Adhikari Smith, and Associate Professor Archie Chapman – stated that the New Vehicle Efficiency Standard (NVES) legislation is a crucial step toward sustainable transport, incentivizing car manufacturers to export their most fuel-efficient vehicles to Australia.

The upcoming NVES will require car makers to reduce carbon emissions for new vehicles starting in January 2025, with fines for high emitters coming into effect from July of the same year after a six-month grace period.
