Since the in Singapore and the government announced that it will be rolling out the deployment of 60,000 charging points at public car parks and private premises by 2030, the interest in securing ownership in EV has increased significantly in Singapore.

The general sentiment is that with the government incentivizing drivers via grants and schemes to adopt electric cars, buying an electric car is less expensive now. In addition, electric cars are also widely seen to be cheaper to run, since they rely on electricity rather than petrol.

EV Early Adopter Incentive (EEVI) – Up to $20,000

The scheme that will likely attract the most people to buy an electric car is the EV Early Adopter Incentive (EEAI).

For example, the Tesla Model 3 has an estimated ARF payable of $76,959. A 45% rebate would translate to $34,631. Since this is capped at $20,000, the EEVI ARF rebate for the Tesla Model 3 will be $20,000.

A Typical Tesla 3 will cost around SGP $173,000.00 (USD $129,000.00) including a price tag of $60,000 COE.
