Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat announced in last year’s Budget speech that Singapore will be gradually phasing out internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles by 2040.

To achieve this goal, the government has laid out various measures to boost the adoption of electric vehicles (EV) in Singapore.

As part of the inter-ministerial Singapore Green Plan 2030 announced on Wednesday (February 10), the government said it would “make it easier to buy and own” electric vehicles.

The government has also highlighted its plans to expand the EV charging infrastructure to 60,000 by the end of 2030. This is double the original target it set of 28,000.

Currently, there are about 1,600 EV charging stations islandwide.
