Why are scooters and motorbikes excluded from these discounts?
Vehicles emit more CO2 than motorbikes and scooters, so they contribute more CO2 to the atmosphere. Our focus is on reducing WA's carbon footprint by encouraging motorists to choose lower CO2 emissions vehicles.
As a vehicle gets older, it will not operate at the same energy-efficient level. The discount is reduced by 5% each year to reflect the vehicle’s changing energy-efficiency level. Once your vehicle reaches its fifth year based on year of manufacture, it is no longer eligible.
Gas and electric vehicles will only be eligible if they were manufactured that way, not converted. They must have a valid combined CO2 emissions output under the testing carried out according to the Australian Design Rules.
