Develop convenient and comprehensive EV charging infrastructure

Media Replies 01 Dec 2022 electric vehicles

We thank Mr Xu for his feedback (“充电桩不宜建在组屋停车场”, 25 November 2022).

As Singapore is a small densely populated city, low powered overnight charging is optimal for most electric vehicle (EV) drivers. Given that the average daily mileage of a car is less than 50km and with EVs nowadays commonly having a range of around 350km, an average EV driver will only need to charge their vehicle roughly once a week. Not only will this reduce the need for expensive infrastructure grid upgrades, it is also better for the maintenance of the EV’s battery.

Thus, it is important that we install chargers at residential carparks. To support the adoption of EVs, we need to ensure that we have an accessible and reliable charging network. By 2025, every HDB town will be EV-ready. The three to 12 charging points to be installed in each HDB carpark by 2025 is a starting baseline, and will be scaled up in tandem with EV adoption. We target to deploy 60,000 charging points by 2030, with 40,000 charging points in public car parks and 20,000 in private premises. The network of slow chargers will be complemented by fast charging in commercial malls, industrial buildings, depots and petrol stations for opportunistic charging.

Besides expanding the charging infrastructure, it is crucial to foster good charging etiquette. LTA will work with charging operators on solutions to encourage considerate use of EV charging lots, for instance to move their vehicles when a charge is complete.

EV users can also access information on charging points such as charging point locations, pricing, power rating and plug type across different operators through the EV Charging Network module on the MyTransport.SG app. This will allow them to locate the nearest public charging points. More features such as real-time availability will be introduced.

We will continue to monitor the rate of EV adoption in Singapore and deploy additional chargers to meet increased local EV charging demand as necessary.
