Electric Vehicles 🚗 There are 19.81 million vehicles registered in Australia—20,000 of those are EVs. Last year the EV market grew by 14,253. One of those was a car I bought. I am an MP who drives an electric vehicle. ... We have not seen any Qld Labor ministers driving around in electric vehicles. They talk up electric vehicles but they are not out there walking the walk. ... When the Labor minister says we should subsidise the price of electric vehicles and that that is the federal government’s responsibility, he is completely wrong. Instead, why doesn’t the state government put electric vehicles into their ministerial fleet and encourage their ministers to drive around in electric vehicles so they can see what the real issues are with using them? ... The easiest way for this government to learn about electric vehicles is for members to get one themselves and starting driving it.
Last week I spoke at the Greater Southern Gold Coast Chamber breakfast about the need for an integrated transport plan that considers the future. I live here too and I don’t want to see Burleigh and Palm Beach ripped up by inappropriate transport so that the Government and Council can increase development 🚫 That’s why I’ve fought for the funding of a Business Case that will consider all transport options and routes available for the Southern Gold Coast not just those already predetermined ✅
