Do we need EV charging locations? In Singapore, it is beyond expensive to own a vehicle. Sometimes we even have to rent our vehicles to fill our need for travel and transport. The Singapore government has made it their mission to cut down on traffic in the city-state, so that cars will not clog our streets and render our functioning roadway system unusable.
If you are one of the lucky ones, you have a car you can call your own in Singapore. Cars are harder to come by in Singapore—they may even be many more times expensive than in other countries. They come with hefty taxes and paperwork you have to fill out before you can even put them on the streets. But if you find it worthwhile to buy one, maybe you should go for the green and environmentally friendly route. You could go for an electric vehicle.
An electric vehicle is unlike your typical fuel-powered car. A fuel-powered car relies on diesel, gasoline, and more to move, while an electric vehicle relies on electric power to sustain its movement. Adding EV charging points will only sustain Singapore in the long run.
Here are a few reasons we need to keep adding them and encouraging the acquisition of electric vehicles.
1) Save fuel costs
The costs of fuel keep rising every year, especially with ongoing political tensions in fuel-rich areas. It is time to stop relying on those regions and start looking for other means to fuel our cars. Adding EV charging locations can help lessen the dependency on fossil fuels. Keeping fossil fuel dependency down will save on fossil fuel costs for the drivers and for Singapore in general.
2) Drive traffic to high-interest areas
As more and more electric vehicles enter mainstream use, we do not want to limit the growth of electric vehicles by making it difficult for car owners to recharge their cars. EV charger locations can help drive traffic to high-interest areas and Singapore as a whole can benefit from the driving of this traffic.
3) Get higher-performance vehicles
One thing that most drivers continuously look forward to is a higher-performance vehicle. SO long as electric vehicles do not match the performance of a fuel-powered vehicle, they will not switch. It’s a good thing that is set to change with every generation of EV.
In Singapore, the need for an electric car charging point is rising. Learn more about how you can drive your electric vehicle without worries when you check out SP Mobility’s charger locations on their website!
