Make them duty free

Re: P.M. on hybrid vehicles 

If he really wants to encourage this why not make Hybrids duty-free? 

There are plenty of Nissan Leafs (full electric) and Toyota Prius (Hybrid) available for import from Japan.

Normal petrol cars are taxed at 25-35% depending on engine size which means if you buy and average WST$20,000-30,000 car there is at least WST$6,000 of duty that has been paid to the government (Duty is on the C&F price not the Sales price)

Once again this man talks about subjects on which he knows little.
