Singapore Laws and Policies
There is no specific, comprehensive legislation governing EVs in Singapore. The legislation applicable to EVs exists in a myriad of subsidiary legislation under the Road Traffic Act (Chapter 276). This subsidiary legislation includes:
- the Road Traffic (Vehicular Emissions) Tax Rules 2017, governing the calculation of the vehicular emission tax for taxable vehicles (including EVs)
- the Road Traffic (Motor Vehicles, Quota System) Rules, governing the issuance of certificates of entitlement for vehicles (including EVs)
- the Road Traffic (Motor Vehicles, Registration and Licensing) Rules, which covers licensing fees and rebates for EVs
- the Road Traffic (Motor Vehicle, Construction and Use) Rules, governing the construction and installation of electrical apparatus and circuits in an EV.
