Electric Vehicles (EVs) will compromise the bulk of our vehicle population in the coming years. To support the adoption of EVs, we have adopted a three-pronged approach via tax incentives, regulations, and standards, and EV charger deployment.
The following measures are aimed at lowering the cost of owning an electric car, particularly mass-market models.

It is important to have good and clear regulations to develop a robust EV ecosystem in Singapore. As a first step, we have vested new statutory functions in LTA to promote and regulate the safe use of EVs and EV charging. Our national EV charging standards, Technical Reference 25 (TR25) is periodically reviewed by representatives from industry, academia and government agencies to ensure that it remains aligned to industry best practices.
We aim to deploy 60,000 electric vehicle EV charging points across Singapore by 2030, comprising 40,000 in public car parks and 20,000 in private premises.
