Road testing Shorten’s policy on electric cars
This week Opposition Leader Bill Shorten announced Labor’s intention to “implement Australia’s first national electric vehicle policy, setting a national electric vehicle target of 50 per cent new car sales by 2030”.
Later on Kiis FM’s Kyle and Jackie O Show, Mr Shorten claimed it takes between eight and ten minutes to charge an electric car.
Trent Nikolic is the Managing Editor of Caradvice.com.au and he spoke with Jane about the target as well as current charging times.
“I just saw Anthony Albanese on Sky News defending it saying you can absolutely charge one in eight to ten minutes which at the moment, right now, is absolutely wrong.”
