The measures of progress for this section are:

  1. Percentage of Electric Cars of total sold per annum
    1. The Australian Bureau of Statistics does not currently track electric vehicles as a separate item.  They are combined with LPG and dual fuel vehicles instead.
    2. The only information available on actual sales was found at this site http://www.ev-sales.blogspot.ca/2014/01/australia-december-2013.html
      New Electric and Hybrid Cars Sold
  2. Percentage of Electric Cars registered of total in Australia
    1. This statistic is not currently being collected by any agency. The national Motor Vehicle Census available from the Bureau of statistics puts LPG, Dual Fuel, Electric and Hybrid vehicles into one group.
