NSW Electric Vehicle Guide: What to consider before purchase

Welcome to the New South Wales Electric Vehicle Guide 2022

This guide’s intention is to lay out all the key aspects that go into considering a battery electric vehicle (or BEV), before committing to purchase. We want to give you the knowledge and confidence to weigh it all up for yourself, and we hope that with this resource in hand, you’ll have thorough, user-friendly information that will help you decide if a BEV is right for you.

This guide was prepared with support from NSW Department of Planning and Environment. The information has been gathered from different sources based on simplicity of language and easy to understand information. There is also more complete and thorough information for people who require it.

Note: This guide will not compare specific brands or models of vehicles due to the extensive differences and aesthetic preferences that would influence a person’s choice to buy a specific
brand of BEV over another. For a reference to a government source for the list of available brands – you can visit this page

We are constantly looking to update information on the guide so if you have any questions or comments, please let us know by emailing us on our Contact Us page.
