We are making NSW the easiest and most affordable place to buy and use an EV in Australia.

In close consultation with industry and other stakeholders, we have developed a balanced package that reduces the barriers to purchasing an EV while ensuring the State will have a sustainable and fair road funding system into the future.

EV strategy

The NSW Government’s EV Strategy will drive sales of EVs to more than 50 per cent of new car sales by 2030-31, preparing the NSW road network for a low-emissions future.

Under this EV Strategy, the NSW Government is:

  • Making it easier to afford an EV by providing incentives and phasing out stamp duty on eligible EVs.
  • Transitioning the entire NSW Government passenger fleet to EVs by 2030.
  • Investing $171 million to build world class road network of ultra-fast charging stations.
  • Introducing a distance-based road user charge (RUC) for eligible EVs of 2.5c/km from the earlier of 1 July 2027 or when EVs reach 30 per cent of new vehicle sales.
