Australia can easily and affordably replace all petrol and diesel cars in ten years.
Beyond Zero Emissions’ Electric Vehicles report shows that the global electric vehicle revolution is rapidly following the transformation of rooftop solar, and is closely tied to the battery revolution happening at the same time.
The benefits to Australia from switching to electric vehicles are huge:
• Australia could eliminate six to eight percent of greenhouse gases
• Shifting all of Australia’s cars and buses to electric within a decade could be cost neutral
• electric vehicles are significantly cheaper to run and maintain than petrol and diesel vehicles
