Victoria electric car tax could be introduced and cost up to $300 a year

Victoria is set to become the first state in Australia to introduce a tax on electric vehicles.

From July 1, owners of fully electric cars in Victoria will pay 2.5 cents per kilometre and owners of hybrids will be slugged two cents per kilometre.

This will be paid at registration time and is forecast to cost drivers up to $300 each year.

“You’ll be able to take a photograph of your odometer and then download it onto the VicRoads site,” Treasurer Tim Pallas said on Wednesday.

The tax is expected to raise $30 million over four years.
