The exemption will apply on the purchase of new and second hand purely electric or hydrogen vehicles.
The exemption is expected to come into force the week commencing 10 July 2021 but will be back-dated for purchases made from 1 July 2021.
We cannot process exemptions for vehicles purchased until the exemption comes into effect so anyone who purchases an eligible electric vehicle from 1 July 2021 should wait to complete the transfer of ownership until after the exemption comes into effect.
This website will be updated when this occurs.
The transfer of purely electric or hydrogen vehicles with no duty applicable will be available through Service Tasmania, online at transport.tas.gov.au and through authorised motor vehicle dealers. Motor vehicle dealers have been informed of this process and will assist clients purchasing new vehicles.
