Electric cars have experienced unprecedented growth in Australia over the last few years. Sales increased by over 200% in 2021 and continue to grow at breakneck speed throughout 2022.

As of May 2022 there are 24 different electric car models available in Australia from 17 different manufacturers. See the full list in the table below.

Australian electric car uptake vs. the world

Despite surging demand and strong sales growth, Australia still significantly lags most of the developed world when it comes to electric car uptake.

Australian government support for electric cars

As of May 2022, the Australian Government does not provide any direct EV incentives, outside of slightly lower luxury car tax (LCT) for "fuel efficient vehicles". This could change however depending on the outcome of the next federal election.

Seven out of the eight state/territory governments however provide financial incentives for electric car purchases. You can read more about them in our ultimate EV incentives guide.
