Ms Bennett said National was not against incentives for electric vehicles.
"We see the benefits in cleaner emissions from vehicles.
"Electric vehicles and other vehicles with low emissions are a great thing.
"It's the penalising of those who don't have alternatives that I think is really unfair.
"Its another tax, another cost on those small businesses, the tradies the farmers, those that are doing the hard grind out there."
It's worth reading the full article, which also mentions that:
Imported Motor Vehicle Industry Association chief executive David Vinsen yesterday
said the minister's proposal was a "draconian" way of reducing emissions] A simple pricing signal to the buying public would be most effective, he said.
So National isn't against EV incentives but is against a levy. So who does National expect to pay for the incentives? I think it's pretty fair that those who are creating the pollution are the ones funding it
