Zero Emissions Vehicle (ZEV) Subsidy

The Zero Emissions Vehicle Subsidy is now closed to new applications.

About the program

The ZEV subsidy was launched to get more Victorians driving the future of transport sooner. Over the duration of the program just under 10,000 ZEV subsidies were delivered.

ZEVs are an important step in Victoria’s transition to a clean energy future. They do not use petroleum fuels and therefore do not emit greenhouse gas emissions from the tailpipe.

The Victorian Government’s target is for half of all light vehicle sales in Victoria to be ZEVs by 2030. Its Zero Emissions Vehicle Roadmap delivers the long-term vision to roll out this key driver of our clean energy future.

See our zero emissions vehicles facts to learn more about ZEVs. From performance to cost, you’ll be surprised about the potential of ZEVs.

More ways to drive our clean energy future

You can drive the future of transport and our clean energy future even further with solar panels on your roof and a solar battery at home.

With solar panels, you have the potential to drive completely carbon neutral, charging your car from the clean power you generate throughout the day with affordable, renewable energy. And with a solar battery you have the flexibility to charge your car with the renewable energy from your solar panels at any time.
