Low Emission Vehicles

The South Australian Government is committed to healthy communities and a clean environment.

Our commitment to urban and transport planning reforms, delivering new road infrastructure, expanding and modernising the public transport system and promoting active travel, such as cycling and walking, are all reducing transport-related air toxic and greenhouse gas emissions.

South Australia’s Low Emission Vehicle Strategy addresses the motor vehicles on our roads. The Strategy provides a deliberate approach to removing or mitigating barriers to low emission vehicles and, therefore, accelerating uptake in our State.

On this site you’ll find advice and tools to help you reduce emissions – and costs – associated with your current and future vehicles.
