Extract from above:
... Mr Bridges said the claim the scheme would be revenue neutral was incorrect.
"Even if you saw a doubling of EVs and small cars, which I think in itself is a pretty strong ask, on the numbers we've crunched there's four-to five hundred-million dollars in taxes coming in over subsidies and that's a sneaky half-a-billion dollar tax grab into the government's coffers."
He said even if imports of electric and low-emission cars doubles - putting an extra 26,000 on the roads annually - the scheme would raise more in taxes than it pays out in subsidies each year, adding up to between $400 million and $500m over the first five years.
Not sure of what point you are raising.
Lets say 160,000 cars at $3000 which is overstated 480M
Lets say 26000 EV's at a full $8000 which is overstated 208M
I cant see the issue. Its not even possible at all to get a half billion tax grab. There went be anywhere near that amount collected. Thats your answer. There is little point reading Nationals or Labours spin if you are looking at facts.
