Electric Vehicles Test-Bed

Electric Vehicles (EVs) Test-Bed

The EMA and the Land Transport Authority (LTA) co-lead a multi-agency EV taskforce to determine the feasibility of using EVs in Singapore. Launched in June 2011, the EV test-bed aims to assess the performance of EVs and the ease of charging under Singapore’s urbanised environment and road conditions.

The Test-Bed Research Design

Under the EV test-bed, data from four EV models was collected - Daimler Smart electric drive (ed), Mitsubishi i-MiEV, Nissan Leaf and Renault Fluence Z.E.

The Test-Bed Research Design

Robert Bosch (SEA) Pte Ltd was appointed as the charging service provider to design, deploy, operate and maintain Singapore’s charging infrastructure.

Update on the EV Test-Bed

The application process is now closed. Data collection ended on 31 Dec 2013 and a review of collated data is currently underway.

In all, 89 EVs participated in the test bed, involving 53 organisations. To cater to the charging needs of the EVs, 68 normal charging stations (full charge within 7-8 hours) and three quick charging stations (full charge within 30-45 minutes) were deployed all over the island.
