The Australian automotive industry will be “wiped off the map” in the next two years if government changes go ahead, according to a report.
The Government’s “technology strategy” has been under intense scrutiny and scrutiny, as the cost of new car technology has been blamed for the industry’s recent slump.
The latest government data, released today, shows a 13 per cent fall in the number of vehicles on the road between January and June of this year.
The decline is largely due to an expected surge in battery storage, with more than 80 per cent of all vehicles now being fitted with lithium-ion batteries.
The report also showed the number and cost of battery replacement is still being underestimated by the industry, with an average cost of just under $1,000 for a new battery pack.
The cost of a vehicle battery is the amount of energy required to charge the battery up to its full capacity and is the largest single cost of an electric vehicle.
The impact of the government’s decision to stop buying new cars, however, has not been limited to the cost.
Tesla, the leading electric car manufacturer, reported its first ever loss of more than $2 million, with the company also blaming the “fatal blow” to the industry on its decision to use Tesla’s “next-generation battery technology”.
The “fiasco” at Tesla is the “worst day” for the car industry in Australian history, the report said, adding it is “deeply disappointed”.
Tesla, a privately-held company, is now facing a number of legal and regulatory issues, with a lawsuit against the Government over the sale of its Model S sedan due to be heard in the Supreme Court this month.
The court case, which is expected to last years, could have major consequences for Tesla, with it likely to have to make a major sale of vehicles to comply with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) investigation.
Tesla also faces an internal investigation into whether it broke Australian consumer law when it failed to provide information on its batteries to regulators during its testing.
“The government’s technology strategy is causing the world’s most advanced and expensive car technology to disappear in the Australian automotive market,” said Tony Bock, the executive director of the Australian Automotive Industry Association.
The government’s ‘technology strategy’ is causing Tesla’s vehicle technology to vanish in the world of Australia’s most expensive car.” “
Tesla’s latest loss is only the beginning of what’s to come for the world-class Australian automotive company.
The government’s ‘technology strategy’ is causing Tesla’s vehicle technology to vanish in the world of Australia’s most expensive car.”
A spokesperson for Tesla told the ABC the company had been unable to respond to the report.
“While we have not yet seen the full report, we would encourage any reader who has any questions or concerns to contact us at the following email address: [email protected]” The Australian Automobile Industry Association said the report should “serve as a warning for anyone considering buying a Tesla vehicle”.
“While there have been no reports of damage to the vehicle from the Government’s policy, Tesla is now under investigation by the ACCC for misleading consumers about the state of its battery technology,” the organisation said.
“It is the industry that is responsible for the most expensive vehicles on Australian roads, and this report demonstrates the impact this government policy will have on Tesla’s ability to meet the demand for its vehicles.”
