Written Reply by Minister for Transport S Iswaran to Parliamentary Question on Targets for Installation of Electric Vehicles Charging Points in HDB Carparks and Towns

12 Jan 2022 In Parliament

Mr Chua Kheng Wee Louis asked the Minister for Transport for each of the towns which are not specifically identified as electric vehicle (EV)-ready towns by 2025, and specifically in Sengkang, what is the target number and percentage of total HDB carparks within the town that will be fitted with EV chargers by 2025.

Reply by Minister for Transport S Iswaran:

1.     As of December 2021, Sengkang had 28 publicly accessible EV charging points deployed across shopping malls, petrol stations and HDB carparks. This will increase to 45 later this year under the joint LTA-URA pilot tender. We will progressively deploy and increase the number of EV charging points in all HDB carparks in tandem with our EV adoption rates, taking into account available electrical capacity, and upgrading electrical infrastructure where necessary.
