Consultation on National Electric
Vehicle Strategy Opens

< 1 minute to read

Consultation on the National Electric Vehicle Strategy is now open, with the Government today releasing a consultation paper seeking views on proposed goals, objectives, and actions for the strategy.

The AADA welcomes the consultation paper as an opportunity to provide industry input and expertise to help shape a nationally led approach that ensures customers can access the best transport technologies available and help lower vehicle emissions.

Franchised new car Dealers play an important role in supplying Zero and Low Emissions Vehicles to the market and importantly also educate, inform, and assist consumers who are in the market for a new car. Franchised Dealers are also factory trained and equipped to repair and maintain electric drivetrains, so are well placed to respond to the logistical challenge of supplying and safely servicing these vehicles.

The AADA is engaging in the consultation process with members, government, and other automotive industry associations to formulate a submission. The consultation period closes on 31 October 2022 and the discussion paper is available to view online. The AADA welcomes Dealer feedback.
