Appendix A: Vehicle models

Australians are already choosing low emission vehicles. Hybrid sales almost doubled in 2020, increasing from 31,191 vehicles in 2019 to 60,417 vehicles (FCAI 2020). Battery electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles hit a record 8,688 sales in the first half of 2021, representing 1.57% of the total light vehicle market (Electric Vehicle Council 2021). Registrations of electric vehicles surged, almost doubling to 23,000 registrations from 2020 to 2021 (ABS 2021).

Table 2 illustrates that in September 2021, Australians had access to 60 passenger vehicle models including 17 battery electric, 21 plug-in hybrid vehicles and 22 hybrid vehicles. This is a 20% increase since the discussion paper was published in February 2021. A number of these models also come in different battery and power specifications. Thirty-one of these models are available under $65,000 including 7 battery electric vehicles, 6 plug-in hybrid vehicles and 18 hybrid vehicles. For the commercial market, 22 battery electric light and heavy duty vehicle models are available in Australia.

Table 3 shows the growing range of low emission vehicles that are expected to be available in the Australian market soon, which has more than doubled since the discussion paper.
