Implement Auto Green Paper – Dean Macpherson – POLITICS

It’s time to scrap duties on electric vehicles and implement the Auto Green Paper

19 July 2022

Please find attached a soundbite by Dean Macpherson MP.

The DA believes it is time to scrap import duties on electric vehicles (EVs) which currently stand at 25% and implement the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition’s Auto Green Paper.

The cost of fuel is becoming an unbearable burden for many families and government must allow consumers the option to buy reasonably priced EVs as an alternative.

It makes no sense whatsoever that import duty exists on electric vehicles, except to protect big manufactures in South Africa who refuse to transition to EVs and hybrids, and keep South Africans on petrol and diesel to keep raking in fuel taxes.
