I have received my renewal and no discount so rang Vic Roads.
The hybrid discount does not apply to Teslas it only applies to hybrids as defined as driven by "both electricity and fuel"...as the Tesla is electricity only it does not receive the discount!
Now this is one of the funniest rulings ever!
Higgy, please refer them to the
ROAD SAFETY (VEHICLES) REGULATIONS 2009 - REG 102(3) If a motor vehicle is a hybrid vehicle or an electric powered passenger car, the fee to be paid for registration or renewal of registration of the vehicle is—
(a) nil, if the fee that would otherwise be payable under section 9 of the Act or Schedule 3 is less than $100; or
(b) in any other case, the fee that would otherwise be payable under section 9 of the Act or Schedule 3, less $100.
