Victoria, Australia commits to ZEVs with $100m package

A A$100m ($77m) package is set to make zero emission vehicles (ZEVs), such as those powered by hydrogen, more affordable in Victoria, Australia, as part of the state’s comprehensive plan to meet a target of net zero emissions by 2050.

The news is part of an announcement made over the weekend (2nd May), which saw the Victorian Government launch of a A$3,000 ($2,300) subsidy for ZEVs that will be available for more than 20,000 new ZEV purchases.

To support the rollout of such vehicles, the Labour Government will invest A$19m ($14.6m) to roll out more charging infrastructure on major highways, at key tourist attractions, and locations across Melbourne and regional Victoria.

According to a statement, this will more than triple government-supported fast-charging sites across Victoria, adding at least 50 charging points to the existing network of 24 sites.
