Standard Australia notice EVs

It seems someone has noticed the emerging "standards".
It's the first almost invisible orange link.
Sorry, it really doesn't say much at all except "we see you...".

For when it moves this might still point to it.

Hmmmm....

Page 16 says that
Standards Australia wrote: As the EV market develops, there
is the potential for cottage
providers of EV conversions to
take advantage of relatively high
prices of OEM models. Cheaper
poor quality and unsafe
conversions may then enter the
market.
This was the 3rd highest concern.

I guess it would be less of a concern if Mitsubishi, Holden and Nissan were there as the "Cottage" providers would be the chump change of no significance.

Still the line up for the survey looked ok.
So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.

It's good to see the AEVA is represented as an EV stakeholder.

My slightly cynical attitude at the start of this thread was because when I viewed this document it was 2 pages long! It is now marked as the final October release and has some substance to it.
