PostSubject: Electric car market won't spark without subsidies to reduce emissions, encourage consumers, says rent-seeking Nissan chairman    Mon Jun 05, 2017 10:00 pm

Australia's electric car market was unlikely to take off beyond its current tiny niche unless the federal government introduced subsidies to encourage consumers, says Nissan's global chairman Carlos Ghosn​.



Despite record sales of new cars, just 219 of the 1.2 million new vehicles sold in Australia in 2016 were electric, even that was a 90 per cent drop from the previous year. Battery powered cars represented only 0.0018 per cent of the total market.

Mr Ghosn argued the market wouldn't grow without a public policy that said: "We favour zero emissions cars - usually electric and plug in hybrids - and a subsidy to consumers to encourage them to buy these cars".
