Why aren’t people buying electric cars in greater numbers.
A study just released confirms exactly what the experts have suspected all along.
It’s due to limited action by the Federal Government, high purchase costs of EVs and their limited availability.
Many organisations have set targets to become carbon neutral, but given transport emissions contribute almost 18 per cent of Australia’s total emissions, converting their fleet is going to be challenging.
Any barriers and roadblocks they may be encountering?
What assistance they might need to transition to zero emissions vehicles?
They heard from 177 organisations, representing many industry verticals and levels of government who control almost 70,000 vehicles.
Thanks to ACA Research and support from AGL (Australia’s largest private investor in renewable energy), AFMA’s Electric Vehicles in Business Fleets Report is available free.
The information and insights in the report are designed to provide a status check for organisational transition to zero emissions vehicles, inform and empower suppliers of products and services to Australian fleets, as well as policy makers at all levels of government.
AFMA Executive Director, Mace Hartley said the information and insights in the report are designed to inform and empower suppliers of products and services to Australian fleets, as well as policy makers at all levels of government.
“While we see many private and public sector organisations choosing to ‘go green’ by reducing vehicle emissions, their underlying motivations can vary significantly,” he said.
AGL says it is leading research, policy and practice into the electrification of transport in Australia, with the launch of its electric vehicle subscription service and by working with fleet customers to overcome the many challenges of transitioning to electric vehicles.
