South Australian govt pledges to waive stamp duty and rego on EVs

The South Australian Government has pledged to cut stamp duty and offer five years free registration for electric vehicle buyers, should it be re-elected in next month's election. EV buyers would still be forced to pay some on-road costs – the Compulsory Third Party insurance premium, for example – but the scheme promises to save buyers of $40,000 electric vehicles a handy $1540 upfront and five instalments of $123 registration fees, for a total $2155 saving.
