Western Australia’s three-year trial found electric cars are a good fit for Australian cities. Luke Stearns
Australia’s first electric vehicle trialhas been completed. It ran from early 2010 to the end of 2012 with 11 electric Ford Focus and 23 fast-AC charging bays (Level-2). We found few technological barriers to the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) in Australia, but government incentives for early adopters and government programs for the roll-out of fast-DC charging stations would help Australia fully embrace these cars.
