Besides that, the Singapore Green Plan 2030 includes a strong push to electrify the vehicle population.

To support a switch to electric vehicles (EVs), Singapore will retrofit and develop eight public housing towns to be EV-ready with electric chargers at all public housing car parks in these towns by 2025.

Indranee said, “From about 2,000 charging points today, we will have 60,000 charging points nationwide by 2030.”

On different occasions, Deputy Government Chief Sustainability Officer Ministry of Sustainability and The Environment, Wang Weixiang said that the government is trying to make sure that they provide green commuters, so that means public transportation.

By 2030, they hope 75 percent of trips during peak periods to be on mass public transport. Another policy is for all new car and taxi registration to be of cleaner-energy models.

He said the government has committed that cars and taxis, every product that is sold, have to be clean energy vehicles, either hybrid or fully electric. “And to support that we make sure that car owners have access to charge 60.000 EV charging points by 2030.”

He is optimistic that the plan can be realized because the younger generation no longer associates having a car with social prestige. Now, things are progressively beginning to alter.

“For instance, I don’t own a car, I use public transportation,” he said.
