Queensland EV initiative

Volkswagen Group Australia welcomes Premier Palaszczuk’s Electric Vehicle initiative.


Volkswagen Group Australia (VGA) welcomes the Queensland Government’s initiative in encouraging the uptake of Electric Vehicles.

VGA – which is comprised of the Volkswagen, Audi, SKODA and CUPRA brands – has strong ambitions over the next year to introduce a number of new models that will benefit from Queensland’s new policy.

VGA Managing Director Paul Sansom welcomed the recognition from Premier Palaszczuk that consumers are “overwhelmingly in favour of zero emission vehicle and she has moved decisively to facilitate their take-up”.

“Once again it has fallen to a state or territory leader to act on the profound change that EVs represent to personal mobility,” Mr Sansom said.

“Such initiative, however, again emphases the lack of a uniform national approach. Widespread adoption of EVs has broader societal and environmental benefits, not least the reduction of emissions and reliance on ever more expensive fossil fuel.”
