For all of 2013, only 304 plug-in vehicles were sold in Australia.

Of the 304, over 66% were purchased by fleets, thus leaving less than 100 for purchase by private buyers.

As we’ve mentioned before, price is a big issue for EVs in Australia:

“When the LEAF first launched in Australia, it was priced at $51,500 AUD ($53,100 US), but in December of 2012, Nissan cut the price down to a more reasonable $46,990 AUD ($48,465 US). Then, in mid-2013, Nissan cut the price even more. The LEAF is now available for a “drive away” price of $39,990 AUD ($41,200 US).

“The LEAF faces slim competition in Australia, with only the $48,800 AUD ($50,332 US) Mitsubishi i-MiEV and the $59,990 AUD ($61,874 US) Holden Volt considered actual rivals there.”
