A few weeks ago the Victorian Labor Government's new proposed tax on electric cars was dubbed by leading environmental organisations as the ‘worst electric vehicle policy in the world’ (and rightly so).

The Greens will vote against the Victorian Labor Government’s electric vehicle tax in Parliament. Victoria is the only place in the world trying to make electric cars more expensive with a tax like this. Instead, we’re negotiating with the Government for funding and policies to make electric cars more affordable and bring down transport emissions, which are a key contributor to climate change.

We’ve got a plan to rapidly accelerate Victoria to an electric vehicle future, and it doesn’t include Labor’s bad tax. You can read more about our plan to accelerate Victoria to an electric vehicle future here.
