Australian Electric Vehicle Comparison Table
Compare all the current Australian EV’s in the one place, easily!

Battery Electric Vehicles (or just EV’s) haven’t really taken off here in Australia… yet. Unfortunately we’re about 5 years behind every other major area like the US, Europe or China who have all embraced EV’s en mass. Over there they are selling in the hundreds of thousands already with dozens of models from all the major players and at much more competitive prices. They even have fantastic EV rebates in many locations!

Fortunately though things are just now starting to move a bit down under since a number of major car manufacturers launched their first (or 3rd) EV in 2019. As such it’s actually getting tough to keep track of them all! It’s even harder to easily compare them together as a whole to see how they stack up against each other. As such the Australian Electric Vehicle Comparison Table was born!

Below you’ll find all the major cars that are currently available for purchase right now in Australia. In the table we cover everything from drive away price to range to charging rates so check it out!

Other Considerations

Now there’s a lot of information there so here are some pointers to help you make sense of it all. To start with, many of the cars in the list aren’t in the same class such as the Model S (a luxury car) and the Renault Zoe (a non-luxury small hatch). As such the prices, range and performance are of course going to all be completely off.

As more and more cars are released we’ll start to see competition within each of the vehicle classes. We’re already starting to see this like with the Model X and Jaguar I-Pace. These are two luxury SUV’s that are both being sold to a similar audience. As such a direct comparison makes sense.

Furthermore when looking over the specs be mindful that you may not need as long a range as you think given EV’s can charge overnight at home. This means you can own a Hyundai Ioniq that has a smaller range of 278 km’s but wake up every morning with that full range ready to go.

Just The Beginning

As you can no doubt tell, all these stats are a great place to start, but they by no means give you a clear answer on what to buy. To get to that, it’s recommended that you take a look in our Electric Vehicle section and read up more on the specific car.

Be sure to also head over to the manufactures website itself and read up a little on what it looks like on the inside, the different features and packages they offer and so on. If you appreciate the research we do and are thinking of buying a Tesla you can also use our referral code and get free Supercharger km’s too!
