Electric car sales taking off

EV sales in Australia have nearly tripled.

It is looking more and more like the tipping point for electric car sales has been reached in Australia, according to Noosa EV Expo coordinator Vivien Griffin.

“Between 2020 and 2021, EV sales in Australia nearly tripled from 6900 to 20,665, and 2022 first quarter figures at 6752 are already close to the entire sales figures for 2020,” she said.

“These figures would have been much higher if dealers had been able to meet demand immediately. There are major waiting times for supply of several brands. For example, you will have to wait nine to 12 months for your new Tesla Model 3 if you order now.

“The graph of sales in Queensland tells the same story. The only way is up for electric car sales.

“At the EV Expo, we will have 14 different models of electric car on display, so this is a great chance to do your homework and speak to dealers or their loving owners.

“Brands on show include three BMW models, electric Mini, Hyundai Ioniq, Kona and Ioniq 5, MG, Polestar, BYD, Mazda, Nissan Leaf, Mercedes EQA and of course Tesla. In addition, it is a great opportunity to check out the Queensland Government Nexo hydrogen car.”

The Expo is proudly supported by Noosa Council and Noosa Junction Association.
