Gabriel Metcalf, CEO of the Committee for Sydney:

“This is a major public health win for all Sydneysiders – accelerating the shift to electric cars will reduce the air pollution around our streets and roads, allowing us all to breathe cleaner, healthier air.

This package of measures kickstarts our EV prospects from backseat driver to Formula One, opening Sydney up to the latest car technology and a path to zero emissions on our roads.

While we have been advocating for a road user charge to be put in place immediately, the clear timeline set here will provide clarity to EV users and avoid the risk of a shock to the market when EVs make up a significantly larger part of the market.”
