Singapore's Transport Minister, Khwan Boon Wan, has announced that the Tesla Model 3 will qualify for the country's maximum rebate of SGD$30,000 ($22,000 USD) under the nation's Carbon Emissions Vehicle Scheme (CEVS).

The only caveat is that the Model 3 has to test out to be at least as efficient as the Model S. Naturally, we expect the Model 3 to be more efficient than the S, so $22,000 it is then.

There's no pricing information available for the Model 3 in Singapore, but still $22,000 off sounds like a sweet deal to us.

There was a bunch of hoopla awhile back when a Tesla Model S was hit with a carbon surcharge of SDG15,000 ($11,000 USD). The whole ordeal made headline news, but later it was determined that the Model S shouldn't be charged, but rather awarded an incentive of  SDG15,000 ($11,000 USD) under CEVS.

Tesla has not announced an arrival date for Model 3 in Singapore, but there were orders placed in Singapore immediately prior to and following the reveal, so those will have to be fulfilled within the next few years we think.
