Tony Somers spotted it on a ride (yes, his ebikes are pretty cool). Looks like East Perth?

Do you think it got stolen and was driven until the battery was depleted?

Abandoned vehicles get dealt with by the local council.
They sped a few months tracing the owner.
If they cant be found or the owner refuses to pay impound fees then the title is cleared and put to a silent auction.

The reason it would go to a police auction is if it was part of a crime and the owner was the criminal.(criminal seizure)
In which case it wouldn't be there with a sticker.

So you need to know which city council the car is in to find the silent auction.
I was guessing East perth too.
