Electric cars emit 50% less greenhouse gas than diesel, study finds

Recommended Posts

Correct, Electric vehicles have a temporary exemption from RUC. As soon as the tax $$$ from petrol starts to drop that exemption will stop.

I didn't realise there was a specific exemption, is there a time limit on that?

Extending the Road User Charges (RUC) exemption on light vehicles until they make up two percent of the light vehicles fleet

On 22 September 2016, the RUC exemption for light electric vehicles was extended until 31 December 2021. 

This will save the average electric vehicle driver approximately $600 per vehicle each year.

RUC exemption for heavy electric vehicles until they make up 2 per cent of the heavy vehicle fleet

The Energy Innovation (Electric Vehicles and Other Matters) Amendment Act includes legislation to introduce a RUC exemption for heavy electric vehicles.

This will result in significant savings for heavy electric vehicle drivers. This will be dependent on the type of vehicle and the distance it travels in a year.

This exemption took effect from 1 September 2017.
