Actually you can save up on getting an electrical vehicle as Singapore’s different locations and facilities are pretty close by. Apart from public transport, we’ve got bikes from various bike sharing companies. These bikes can be found in either designated bike parking locations or random spots. Or may I know where go you usually frequent? Say if your work place is pretty isolated/ deserted and you’re living in the far end, then it’s another story altogether

The government has actually been encouraging people to purchase Electric vehicles for quite some time now by introducing discounts of multiple thousand dollars in order to incentivize car buyers to pick the more eco-friendly electric option. However, in my opinion the discounts are not nearly enough since electric vehicles are significantly more expensive than their gas powered counterparts. The discount, at its very best, may just cover the premium of the electric car. With both types of cars now costing the same, no rational car buyer would choose to buy the car with limited charging options.
