Charge ahead on clean energy and enjoy cost-savings in the long run instead of running on empty with petrol and diesel. Key thrusts in the Government’s road map to encourage EV adoption in Singapore and reduce carbon emissions by promoting clean energy use, are through:
In view of the improvements in vehicular efficiency, LTA implemented downward revisions in road tax to own and use electric cars through incentives and rebates such as the EV Early Adoption Incentive (EEAI) and Vehicular Emissions Scheme (VES).
Administered by the Energy Market Authority (EMA), Technical Reference 25 (TR25) is the set of technical standards and safety precautions that governs the EV Charging System in Singapore.
All QuickCharge products are TR25 certified.
Target of 60,000 charging points by 2030.
Singapore is exploring the scope for fast chargers, and install them islandwide in places such as petrol stations, shopping malls, office buildings and industrial estates, where feasible, as well as upcoming HDB towns, commercial buildings and new private residences such as condominiums.
ICE vs EV
Cost comparison between an I.C.E. Vehicle (on diesel) and an EV.
|ICE Diesel EV||Pure EV|
|Fuel Capacity||80 Litre||97 kWh|
|Cost per Tank/Charge ($)||$157||$22|
|Cost per Km||$0.30||$0.10|
|Annual Fuel Cost (based on 60000km)||$18,000||$6,000|
|Annual Maintenance Cost (based on 60000km)||$3,600||$1,200|
|Savings per Year||0||$14,400|
An EV can save in excess of $140,000 over the 10-year span of a COE. LTA has also launched the Electric Vehicle Common Charger Grant (ECCG) to defray the cost of installing shared EV chargers in non-landed private residences (NLPRs). Owners of NLPR whose MCSTs are applying for the ECCG to their condominium carparks are welcome to request for more information by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
