Government report predicts 50% of new car sales will be electric by 2035

A report by the federal government’s Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport, and Regional Economics (BITRE) has laid out predictions that by 2035, 50% of new car sales in Australia will be electric. The report modeled its predictions using a comparison of costs of EVs and internal-combustion engines.

The report noted increased uptake of EVs when there were financial incentives to do so, whereas removal of such incentives (or a lack-thereof) sees a reduction in uptake of EVs.
