Getting on with electric vehicles
Electric vehicles form a key part of our commitment to transition to lower emissions across Victoria's transport system.
The Victorian Government has developed a Zero Emissions Vehicle Roadmap providing a roadmap for transitioning to zero emissions vehicles. It supports our goal of reaching net zero emissions by 2050.
We're making it easier for Victorians to use electric cars by adding new electric charging stations across the state.
The Victorian Government is investing $664,000 to build 15 new charging stations in north western Victoria, including Ouyen, Swan Hill, Kerang, Maryborough and Echuca, as well as smaller rural towns and key tourist sites.
Charging stations expand green tourism opportunities in regional Victoria, with the ultimate aim of creating a green power charging network across Australia.
This new funding builds on the $3 million already invested by the Victorian Government to set up 30 electric vehicle charging stations in Melbourne, Euroa, Barnawartha North, Moe, Torquay, Ballarat and Horsham.
In the Victorian Budget 2020-21, the government invested $25 million to accelerate the uptake of zero-emissions vehicles.
