Electric Vehicle Awareness Sessions
South Australia’s Electric Vehicle Action Plan
The Government of South Australia is investing $18.3 million implementing the Electric Vehicle Action Plan.
The Plan aims to make electric vehicles the common choice for motorists by 2030, and the default choice by 2035, in line with achieving net zero emission by 2050.
Action Theme 2 of the plan empowers agencies to lead by example with the government vehicle fleet. Action 4 of this theme requires that new government fleet vehicles are to be plug-in electric models, where they are cost effective and fit-for-purpose.
