2023 Australian EV Rebates

We understand that navigating the complexities of EV purchase can be a challenge for Fleet Managers. Most states and territories in Australia have their own EV rebates to support EV adoption and corresponding eligibility criteria. We've compiled the information for your convenience.

For more in-depth information on EV adoption in Australia, check out the Electric Vehicle Council’s 2023 report on the current state of EVs across Australia.

Australian Capital Territory

The ACT has a number of EV rebates on offer for new ZEV purchases. These include:

New South Wales

The NSW Government will offer an $3,000 EV rebate for the first 25,000 new full battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), purchased for a dutiable value of less than $68,750 that are registered on or after 1 September 2021.

Northern Territory

The NT Government is offering registration and stamp duty concessions for eligible plug-in electric vehicles.

You can get:

  • Free registration for new and existing PEVs
    • This includes previously registered, interstate transfers and imported or modified PEVs
  • Stamp duty concession of up to $1,500
    • for vehicles valued up to $50,000

Motor Accidents Compensation (MAC) charges including GST and administration fee still apply.

Queensland

The Queensland Zero Emission Vehicle Rebate Scheme provides eligible Queenslanders rebates of up to $6,000 for eligible new Zero Emission Vehicles purchased from 21 April 2023.

SA

The South Australian Government is providing a $3,000 EV rebate and a 3-year registration exemption on eligible new battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles first registered from 28 October 2021.

Tasmania

As of June 30, 2023, Tasmania’s EV rebates have ended. If you purchased an EV before May 25, 2023, you can still claim the EV and FCEV stamp duty exemption. However, this will end on January 1, 2024.

The Tasmanian Government has announced that they have plans to further incentivise EV purchases, but no information has been released.

Victoria

Unfortunately, the Victorian government announced in May 2023 that they were ending the $3,000 electric-car subsidy. Currently there are no plans to offer any new incentives.

Western Australia

The Western Australian Government offers a $3,500 rebate on eligible ZEVs. The rebate is available for 10,000 eligible vehicles licensed in WA, or for three years following the announcement (Saturday 10 May 2025), whichever comes first.

Federal FBT Exemptions

In 2022, a Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) exemption was introduced that removes FBT for EVs under the LCT threshold for fuel-efficient vehicles ($89,332 for the 2023-24 year). The removal of FBT effectively brings down the cost of an EV to parity with a comparable petrol or diesel car.

A list of over 30 cars that are eligible for FBT exemption has been provided, which means there is an electric car to suit most tastes:
