Sales of electric cars take off

Sales of electric vehicles in Australia have almost tripled.

According to Vivien Griffin, coordinator of Noosa EV Expo, it seems increasingly that the tipping point for electric car sales has been reached in Australia.

“Between 2020 and 2021, electric vehicle sales in Australia nearly tripled from 6,900 to 20,665, and the first quarter 2022 figures of 6,752 are already close to the full sales figures for 2020,” a- she declared.

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

“The Queensland sales chart tells the same story. The only way is to sell electric cars.

“At EV Expo, we’ll be showcasing 14 different electric car models, so it’s a great opportunity to do your homework and talk to dealerships or their loving owners.

“Brands featured include three BMW models, Mini Electric, Hyundai Ioniq, Kona and Ioniq 5, MG, Polestar, BYD, Mazda, Nissan Leaf, Mercedes EQA and of course Tesla. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to experience the Queensland Government’s Nexo hydrogen car.

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