Charging stations are being installed around Australia, not much good to us in the bush, but you can charge them at home.

Electric cars are expensive at the moment, like most things the prices will come down in time.

As the prices drop they will become more attractive due to the low running costs.

My cuz just bought this one, not much room for the family - Ok for a quick run to the pub.

where do they get the power for the cars and who can afford them

Umm Read the beginning of this thread charka, its what I worked out would be the costs to go to electric vehicle's :)
And the savings could be used to subsidize the EV's until they go down in price

Good post Pool.

How will any government cope with the loss of fuel excise on 32,732,000,000 litres of fuel each year?

I Looked into it and the excise is about 13 billion a year
so over 10 years would need to take off 130 billion of the saving's I worked out :) http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/wink.gif

So really the cost of replacing the batteries would be built inn Sounds like the old never plan Trust us we are the guberment What would be the cost of a car? Beyond the reach of many i think

Wouldn't that start down low and end up at $13 billion a year? The EV's are not going to be the main vehicle of choice to start.

The batteries like Tesla's big one in SA is guaranteed for 10 years, should last about 15.
That's why I used a 10 year plan.
The solar panels last around 20 years.
SO after 10 years there is even more saving as u only need to replace batteries and not the structure they r built in .

Electric vehicle's r getting cheep and cheaper as more r made and they r working out better ways to build them, Its only been about 8 years since EV's have been having real money and research put into them, if we start getting the ones made in china, they will get very affordable,
The battery price has been the main expense's and 8 years ago they cost $400 USD for 1mwh, by the end of the year Tesla will be making them for $100 USD
Its estimated that in 5 years they will be the same price as ICE vehicles.
You also have to remember they almost do away with Services, 80% less moving parts, they don't even use brakes as the engine breaks the car.
The cost of refilling a EV is also about a quarter of the price of a ICE as well,
Lifetime of ownership say over 200,000km is getting close now to being the same.

Well Yes but if we get rid of all Fossil Fuel Vehicles then there will be 13 billion less revenue for fuel excise , so that has to be taken into consideration. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/wink.gif http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/wink.gif

I would like to see some positive action by the government to reduce the price of electric cars.
Unfortunately our government seems to be in transition from chronic ineptitude toward progressive imbecility.
