Cars will soon be washed in the same way as they would be for any other car, with no-hindrance wash stations set up in every car.
The move is designed to ease the transition from petrol and diesel engines to electric vehicles and the need for a vehicle’s maintenance system to be modernised.ABC Radio Brisbane’s Car Wash Tonight reports it’s expected to be the first car wash to have a no-take-back policy for second-half of 2018.
The policy comes after the Federal Government promised to phase out petrol and hybrid vehicles by 2035.
But with a record-high number of second-generation cars in Queensland, the Government said it would not be using the petrol- and hybrid-only approach to implement the change.
“As we move from petrol to electric and hybrid and other technologies, we’ll need to consider the safety and health implications of any new technology that we develop,” Mr Abbott said.
“We will take the advice of experts in the industry, including the Australian Automobile Manufacturers Association, to make sure that we’ve got the right technology to do the job.”
