Singapore Aims to Have Nearly 2,000 EV Chargers in HDB Car Parks by 2025
Singapore has set an ambitious target to phase out internal combustion engine (ICE) cars by 2040, and
to achieve this, the government has announced several measures to speed up the adoption of electric
vehicles (EVs) in the country. One of the latest measures is the installation of at least three EV charging
points at nearly 2,000 Housing and Development Board (HDB) car parks by 2025.
EV Charging Infrastructure in Singapore
The government has tripled its original target of setting up 28,000 charging points to 60,000 by 2030.
Over 600 EV charging points will be installed across 200 public car parks within the next year. The
government is also looking to establish eight EV-ready towns in Singapore by 2025. These towns will be
located at Ang Mo Kio, Bedok, Choa Chu Kang, Jurong West, Punggol, Queenstown, Sembawang, and
Tengah. In addition, the government has announced plans to make other towns progressively EV-ready
by the 2030s.
Installation of EV Chargers in HDB Car Parks
The latest initiative to install EV charging points at HDB car parks will further accelerate the adoption of
EVs in Singapore. The charging points will provide low-powered, overnight charging to meet the needs
of car owners and minimize the load on the electrical grid. This move is an essential step to achieve
Singapore’s vision of having an EV fleet of 60,000 by 2030.
Benefits of EV Charging Points in HDB Car Parks
The installation of charging points in HDB car parks will benefit residents who live in HDB flats, as most
Singaporeans reside in these types of homes. The installation of EV charging points in HDB car parks is a
significant boost to the adoption of EVs, as residents will be encouraged to switch to EVs, knowing that
charging their cars will be convenient and accessible. The convenience of charging EVs at HDB car parks
will further boost the EV adoption rate.
The installation of EV charging points at HDB car parks is one of the many measures taken by the
Singapore government to accelerate the adoption of EVs in the country. With the installation of charging
points, it will be more convenient for car owners to charge their EVs, which is an essential step towards
achieving the country’s vision of having an EV fleet of 60,000 by 2030. The government’s continued
support and incentives will further boost the adoption rate of EVs, and Singapore will be on track to
achieve its goal of phasing out ICE cars by 2040.
