Grattan: End petrol engines by 2035

The Grattan Institute has released a new report urging Australia to implement a zero emissions standard for cars, vans and utilities by 2035.

Grattan notes that the nation’s light vehicle fleet is responsible for two-thirds of Australia’s transport emissions, and it argues that just relying on market forces to ‘decarbonise’ it is a risky strategy.

Grattan wants property developers to be forced into installing vehicle chargers, and for the luxury car tax to be abolished, claiming that this makes the importation of electric vehicles more expensive.
