Tasmanians can still technically claim the EV and FCEV stamp duty exemption until January 1, 2024, but only if they entered into a contract of sale before May 25, 2023.

In June this year the Tasmanian Department of State Growth unveiled its Climate Change Action Plan 2023-25, which has $10 million of funding behind it, and includes plans to further incentivise the purchase of EVs, along with e-bikes and e-scooters.
