Electric vehicles and their future became a major subject of the pre-election campaign.One report says a mass take-up of electric cars could improve the stability of the electricity grid - and decrease household power bills

Electric cars suddenly became a national talking point with the major parties making starkly opposing claims.

Labor leader Bill Shorten has announced he wants half of all new cars to be electric by 2030: the current take-up sits at just point two of a per cent.
