Vehicle & Energy Incentives

Electric Vehicle Incentives

The following incentives are available by state/territory. Customers should confirm their own eligibility and be aware that government programs are subject to funding limitations and eligibility criteria may change at any time, including during the period between placing your order and taking delivery of your vehicle.

Vehicle Federal Incentives

Australia

Electric Vehicle Registration & Tax: Luxury Car Tax

In Australia, fuel efficient vehicles attract less Luxury Car Tax, leading to a saving of up to $3,715. The Luxury Car Tax is levied at 33c on each dollar above a certain threshold. For most cars that threshold is $76,950 in 2023, however for fuel efficient vehicles including the Tesla Model S, Model 3, Model X, and Model Y, that threshold is $89,332.

The Australian Government has introduced a Treasury Laws Amendment Bill which affects the Fringe Benefit Tax for eligible new zero or low emissions vehicles registered on or after 1 July 2022. Electric vehicles with a vehicle subtotal of $89,332 (including GST) or less are eligible for this FBT exemption. To learn more, visit Treasury Laws Amendment (Electric Car Discount) Bill 2022.
