This article explains what is on offer to support the uptake electric motorcycles in Australia.

We are pleased to see progress with state government incentivises rolling out to support the uptake of two-wheel electric vehicles in Australia.

Here's whats currently on offer:

Australian Capital Territory

Brand New electric motorcycles and scooters purchased pay $0 stamp duty for their initial purchase. New and used electric vehicles will receive two years of free registration. Learn more.

New South Wales

Stamp Duty Abolished 

The abolition of 3% stamp duty is confirmed and you can save up to $600 on your new electric FONZ motorcycle. FONZ vehicles registered in NSW from 1 September 2021 may be eligible to claim back your stamp duty.  The stamp duty refund is provided direct from Revenue NSW and to claim, please follow this link to register with the Electric Vehicle Portal:

Note. the NSW government has not recognised Arthur electric as an eligible electric vehicle. We are working with the relevant authorities to have this decision overturned. 

UPDATE 🥳

FONZ has been lobbying Revenue NSW since October 2021 to overturn the ruling that Arthur electric scooters are ineligible for the NSW electric vehicle stamp duty rebate.  We are thrilled to say that we were notified on 30 June 2022 that the NSW Treasury has overturned the decision and will be contacting FONZ Arthur owners to advise. This is a great example of government and industry working together to get a positive outcome.

Queensland

Electric motorcycles and electric scooters pay reduced stamp duty of $2 per $100 compared to up to $4 per $100 for more polluting vehicles. Learn more.
