Bill Shorten to flag a new pollution regulation on car retailers and a reboot of the heavily criticised safeguard mechanism

Labor will set a national electric vehicles target of 50% new car sales by 2030, and 50% for the government fleet by 2025, as well as allowing business to deduct a 20% depreciation for private fleet EVs valued at more than $20,000, as part of its climate change policy to be unveiled on Monday.
