Hybrid and electric vehicles

Electric vehicles and some low emission petrol-electric hybrid vehicles receive a concession on motor vehicle tax. The discount is automatically applied when you register your car.

To be eligible for the concession, vehicles must be:

  • a manufacturer designated petrol-electric hybrid, diesel-electric hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or electric vehicle
  • have carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions no higher than 150 grams/kilometre (g/km) in the ‘combined’ driving cycle.

Vehicles that were awarded a 4½ or 5 star rating under the previous Green Vehicle Guide will continue to be eligible for lower tax.

Find out about the cost of registering and running an electric vehicle.

Vehicles modified for wheelchair transport

If you're the registered operator of a vehicle that is only used privately and has been modified to transport wheelchairs, you may be eligible for lower tax.

To apply, you need to go to a service centre in person and provide:

Commonwealth carers

If you receive a Commonwealth Carer Payment or Carer Allowance from Centrelink, you may be eligible for a lower tax rate. You can claim this on 1 vehicle if you're an eligible carer.

Hand in the Carer registration concession declaration when you go to a service centre to renew your registration, or post it to the address on the form. The reimbursement is mailed out as a cheque.

If you're already receiving a pensioner concession on your car registration, you are not eligible for the lower tax rate.
