The South Australian Labor Party has issued a promise to improve access to electric motorcycles by waiving vehicle registration and stamp duty on new electric vehicles for five years.
Of course, the promise is reliant on the party retaining power at this year’s state election, although it should be noted that the party has been in government a record 16 years and is seeking a fifth four-year term.
The Australian Government has refused to offer subsidies on any electric vehicle. So it is up to the states to provide incentives.
While his comments mainly concern their electric and hybrid cars, BMW also has electric maxi-scooters which are not yet sold in Australia. They are also planning more with the unveiling of the eRR electric superbike concept.
