MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 14th August, 2019) The share of electric vehicles in total sales of new cars in Australia will reach 50 percent by 2035 even if the government does not support this shift, a report prepared by the government's Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economies showed.
"Australian EV [electric vehicle] share of new sales is predicted to reach 8 per cent by 2025 and 27 per cent by 2030. Globally, EV share of new sales is predicted to reach 18 per cent by 2025 and 36 per cent by 2030," the report said.
The document further confirmed that the country was already on its way to reaching the targets outlined by the new Labor government earlier this year, namely to have electric vehicles make up half of total sales of new cars by 2030.
