The electricity to charge an EV works out around a third as much per kilometre as buying petrol for an equivalent vehicle. Maintenance costs are also much lower, since an electric motor requires virtually no servicing over the life of the vehicle. (There will still be some maintenance of parts of the car such as tires, suspension and brakes, like any other vehicle.) On a national level, electric vehicles can help with Australia’s energy security. At present Australia is highly dependent on other countries for petroleum imports. Electric vehicles are easy to power from domestic energy sources, reducing our dependence on foreign oil. Please consider all cost before purchasing an EV.
