Zero Emission Vehicles

Home / Zero Emission Vehicles
The South Australian Government is working with major energy and automotive players to help capture the benefits of the transition to zero emission vehicles, and to overcome some of the barriers.

With our high penetration of renewable energy and existing skills in automotive and advanced manufacturing, South Australia is an ideal research and development destination.

An increase in the uptake of zero emission vehicles in South Australia could bring jobs and economic benefits to the State. The recent report “Recharging the Economy” provides information about the economic impact of zero emission vehicle uptake.

Other key drivers for transitioning to zero emission vehicles include: reducing greenhouse gas emissions, clean air mandates in major global cities to protect human health, rapid advances in enabling technologies such as batteries and fuel cells, and the risk of future oil supplies.
