Queensland electric vehicle strategy
Our future is electric and the Queensland Government is paving the way for our state to gain the benefits of
electric vehicles or EVs.
The transition to EVs will help to diversify the state’s economy and will reduce vehicle emissions and their environmental impacts.
Queensland’s EV strategy outlines how the Queensland Government is supporting this transition.
The Queensland Electric Super Highway is a network of fast charging stations connecting Cairns to the Gold Coast.
This is the world’s longest fast charging highway within a single state and is just one of the ways the Queensland Government is preparing for an electric future.

In 2017 the Queensland Government launched The Future is Electric: Queensland’s Electric Vehicle Strategy – a strategy to help Queensland shift to a cleaner, greener electric vehicle fleet.
The strategy outlines 16 initiatives that will:
- Empower the community to make informed choices
- Enable the transition to EVs through charging infrastructure
- Explore cost-effective programs to support uptake of EVs
- Envisage what future actions may be required.
A focus of the strategy is the Queensland Electric Super Highway, a network of fast charging stations allowing EVs to travel from Coolangatta to Cairns and Brisbane to Toowoomba.
