Incredibly, Australia has no mandatory fuel efficiency standard for light vehicles. As has widely been reported, the Australian Government is currently consulting on a fuel efficiency standard (FES) to improve the fuel efficiency of vehicles imported in Australia.

Anyone paying attention to the take-up of electric vehicles (EVs) in Australia will be well aware that the Australian Capital Territory is the jurisdiction with the fastest growing fleet of electric vehicles. However, for those of us involved with EVs in Canberra for some time, it has been a slow journey.
PHEVs are touted by some manufacturers as the way to greenhouse emission and pollution reductions. But are they really? The evidence show otherwise.
The AEVA national conference and EV Expo is on again, and this year it's in Perth. Come along and learn about the latest trends in electromobility - all the latest cars, bikes, boats, trains and aeroplanes!
From 1 July 2022, employers do not need to pay fringe benefits tax (FBT) on eligible electric cars and associated car expenses. Unlike other FBT exemptions, employers still need to determine the taxable value of the exempt car benefits to include it in their employee’s reportable fringe benefits amount (RFBA). Employers must report the RFBA on their employee’s income statement or payment summary. Employees should speak to their registered tax agent for advice on the consequences of having a reportable fringe benefits amount.
