There are predictions of a few hiccups in getting more electric vehicles on our roads.

The Government wants total driving cut by a fifth, and 30 percent of people driving zero emission cars by 2035.

Manufacturer Singer Electric says home charging units haven't been subsidised, and can cost up to $5,000.

Marketing Manager Finn McLaren told Kate Hawkesby that's not the only issue.

He says supply issues mean people could be in for a six month wait for a unit.
