New Govt. Urged To Step Up Support For E-Car Charging
Car companies and electrical charging station operators have begun urging the newly returned Morrison Government to support moves to establish a nation-wide network of such stations – despite PM Scott Morrison previously expressing total disdain for the e-car movement.
Geoff Gwilym, CEO of the Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce, yesterday backed claims that Australia has one of the slowest uptakes of electric vehicles in the developed world.
He said the Government must “move quickly” to encourage the provision of more electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
Behyad Jafari, of the Electric Vehicle Council, claims a vast nationwide network of charging stations is critical to accelerate electric vehicle uptake, and says that the Government should assist.
