The Government's offering up new transport options, rather than kicking people out of their cars.

Included in their Emissions Reduction Plan is more than half a billion dollars towards pushing electric and hybrid vehicles.

The money will help lower and middle income households scrap their fossil-fuel burning cars for a climate-friendly alternative.

A pilot of the scheme will involve up to 2500 vehicles and begin next year.

To discuss this, David Vinsen, Chief Executive of the Imported Motor Vehicle Association joined Kerre McIvor.
