Bill Gillespie, SEA Electric’s President, Asia Pacific Region has made this statement relating to the weekend’s Federal election result.
“We congratulate the new Federal Government on their election success over the weekend, and we look forward to working with them in the coming years to advance the uptake of electric vehicles across the nation,” said Mr Gillespie.
“As Australia moves towards our net zero emissions goals, it is imperative that the country embraces sustainable technology that delivers real results.
“Locally, emissions from the road transport task make up 19 per cent of the country’s total emissions, with heavy vehicles contributing 38 per cent of that total.
“Throughout the lead up to the election, the Australian Labor Party has noted several key policies, such as the Driving the Nation Fund, the National Reconstruction Fund, and the Powering Australia plan, which have the potential to be positives for EV adoption and furthering local manufacturing.
“The EV movement in Australia has a bright future, and we are excited to be at the forefront.”
