Didnt intend the caps, but so what?
The sitting AUS govt released the budget last night. Actually the polls indicate a change from Liberal to Labor, in an election which is likely to be called for May, so the budget is most likely meaningless.
The Labor opposition has declared an all out attack on energy, promoting EVs to be by 2025, 50% used by govt, and by 2030, mostly adopted by us sheep.
The issue being debated in the press, is that that is all well and good but the most popular, most vehicle sales currently are for utes, (pickups) with the Toyota Hilux outselling anything else, sedans, SUVs, hatches.
The problem is that there are no vehicles available to replace the Hilux and other utes from Nissan, Mazda, Ford, GM, Tesla or anyone else.
We need quick upramping of Tesla PUT, Rivian, Workhorse, and of course VW, MB, Ford, Toyota, Mazda, Nissan, Hyundai, KIA, Volvo, BYD et al.
There are no obvious current solutions.
