McCallum is joined by James Talia, state reporter. McCallum says as Tom [Elliott] was adamant during the State Budget, one of the huge losers out of the Budget was those in the market for an electric car. He states as of 1 July, anyone who bought a car over $100,000 is going to be faced with a new tax. He says car dealers argued it was going to drive the number of safe and fuel-efficient vehicles on the road. He states it now appears the State Government amended part of this policy. Talia says the VACC, which is a peak body for the automotive industry in Victoria, is pleased that they have had a hearing from Treasurer Tim Pallas on this. Talia states the Opposition is portraying it as the Government being arrogant. He says Pallas is on holiday.

Interview with Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce CEO Geoff Gwilym. Chvastek reports a motorist has won a VCAT hearing ordering car manufacturer Mitsubishi to refund the cost of his Triton. Chvastek notes it's found that the vehicle's fuel consumption figures were higher than advertised. Gwilym explains VCAT has found that the vehicle did not meet expectations of the consumer or the window advertisement. Gwilym mentions Australian Consumer Law helped determine that the motorist be refunded. Gwilym points out there are international standards used for fuel ratings on vehicles. Gwilym believes vehicles should be re-tested in Australia to double check the fuel ratings. He says people should expect some level of variability when it comes to energy ratings on a piece of equipment. Gwilym thinks the issue is likely an individual case rather than a case across all vehicles. Gwilym believes the issue is not for the dealership but for the manufacturer.
