SINGAPORE – In recent years, there has been a rise in the popularity of electric vehicles (EVs). With the government releasing policies and grants hoping to boost its adoption, is it time for a change?
Tesla, for example, has risen from just 30 to 487 in the third quarter based on Singapore’s Land Transport Authority’s (LTA) reports. With the government doubling their initial target of charging ports from 28,000 to 60,000. Is this a sign to finally make the jump to electric? Not to forget the 15 per cent increase per litre in petrol. Perhaps it’s now or never.
Vulcan Post provided a very helpful infographic to show how serious the government is with EVs:
