The Albanese government in Australia says it has done a deal with the Greens and independent Senator David Pocock to pass a law this week that offers tax incentives that will make electric vehicles thousands of dollars cheaper, according to a report by the ABC, which added that tax breaks for hybrid vehicles would end in 2025.

Federal Treasurer Jim Chalmers said the deal would fulfill a promise the Labor Party made before the election in May and that the government fleet would change to electric vehicles, while the tax office would issue advice on when home charging infrastructure, which can cost thousands of dollars, can be claimed, the report said.
