Singapore aims to set up 60,000 EV charging points nationwide by 2030 and completely phase out fuel vehicles by 2040

However, in 2020, the government will increase the subsidies for car purchases and set up electric vehicle charging devices based on the problems of improving the greenhouse effect and climate change. Singapore also aims to completely phase out fuel vehicles by 2040, and recently announced tax reductions on lower-powered electric vehicles, which means, in the era of the gradual popularization of trams, this country is gradually moving towards electrification.
