Every electric car available in Australia

How many EVs can you buy in Australia?

If you think electric vehicles might be just a fad, like a Rubik’s Cube or a Livestrong bracelet, or even those Oakley stickers everyone had on their windscreens that said “Thermonuclear Protection”, we have news for you: EVs aren’t going anywhere. They’re going everywhere.

In fact, there will come a time when buying an EV won’t be an option, but a necessity: several countries have set target dates to ban the sale of internal-combustion-engine vehicles (the closest being 2025 in Norway), and a swathe of car companies have pledged to go all-electric in the near future (including Jaguar by 2025, and Mazda and Volvo by 2030). 

There are predictions that 40 per cent of all new car sales globally will be EVs by 2030, although currently in Australia, that seems like a fantastical number: only 0.78 per cent of passenger vehicle sales here were EVs in 2020, and only 8,688 EVs were sold in the first-half of 2021 - a drop in the ocean compared to the 1.79 million EVs sold in China in the first eight months of 2021. 

The slow uptake in Australia (which has accelerated in the first half of 2021, to be fair) has a few contributing factors. Unlike other counties such as Norway, where 74 per cent of passenger vehicles sold in 2020 were EVs, our Federal Government has offered no major incentives to encourage EV uptake from consumers, and that lack of demand has led to high prices for EVs here, as well as reticence from some car companies to release EV models to the Australian market. 

Still, some Australian state and territory governments have taken the reins and begun to offer incentives to EV buyers, and the market is growing, which means cheap and affordable EVs will be available on the Australian market in the years to come. 

Although the number is always growing, currently there are around 31 EVs available to buy, and with more coming to Australia in 2022, that tally is expected to rise to approximately 58.

If we were to tick off all the electric cars that are for sale in Australia you’d have quite an unwieldy list, so for the sake of brevity we’ve only included all-electric vehicles, although there are a considerable number of hybrids and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) available here, too.

Also what you won’t find on this list of electric vehicles are discontinued models (like the Renault Zoe EV or BMW i8), or models that haven’t been 100 per cent confirmed for Australia yet (e.g. the Honda e, Rivian electric ute, Subaru Solterra SUV).
