Seen online: EV overtake hybrids in Australian new vehicle sales

The electric vehicle movement is gaining momentum in Australia, as recent data shows that EV sales have surpassed hybrid sales for the first time ever, capturing 6.8% of the overall new car market. This significant shift in the automotive industry indicates that consumers are increasingly aware of the environmental benefits and cost savings associated with electric vehicles, and are willing to make the switch from traditional gas-powered cars.

The increase in EV sales can be attributed to a number of factors, including the growing number of EV models available in Australia, government incentives, and the public's growing concern for the environment. With the Australian government recently announcing a $1.8 billion investment in clean energy technologies, including EVs, the future looks bright for the country's EV market.

As the demand for electric vehicles continues to rise, we can expect to see more manufacturers producing EVs and improving their technology. This shift towards sustainable transportation is not just limited to Australia, but is a global trend. With the help of government support and increasing public awareness, the world is on the brink of a clean energy revolution, and the shift towards electric vehicles is just the beginning. The future of transportation is electric, and it's exciting to see Australia joining this shift towards a sustainable future.
