Interest in electric vehicles (EVs) is growing. Enter the Melbourne EV Show 2023: the first of its kind in Melbourne. With more Australian drivers considering an EV for their next car, the Melbourne EV Show may well become a regular on Melbourne’s exhibition and auto show front. RACV Members save $7 off the Melbourne EV Show’s usual ticket price of $32.
The uptick in EV interest is reflected in vehicle sales. The Tesla Model Y was the second highest selling vehicle in June 2023 in Australia with 5,560 sales, according to the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries, while battery electric vehicles accounted for 8.8 per cent of June sales and made up 7.4 per cent of new vehicle sales during the first half 2023.
There are plenty of new EV models entering the Australian market too, several of which are priced under $50,000, like the BYD Atto 3, GWM Ora, MG ZS EV, MG4 and BYD Dolphin. Other popular EVs include the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the Polestar 2, while an updated Tesla Model 3 sedan will soon launch domestically.
