A nation-wide electric vehicle (EV) charging standard, TR25:2016 has been established for the EV charging system in Singapore. LTA and EDB, which co-chair the Electro-Mobility Singapore (EMS) taskforce, announced that Type 2 AC and Combo-2 DC charging systems would be adopted.

To ensure safe use of the public charging infrastructure, a battery electric vehicle (BEV) or plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) has to be equipped with:

  • A matching Type 2 vehicle inlet (or AC charging only); Or
  • A Combo-2 vehicle inlet (for AC and DC charging). 

Below are the typical connectors and inlets.




Note: A vehicle connector is affixed at the end of the charging cable. This will connect to the vehicle inlet installed on the EV to enable charging.
