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.

My Singaporean friends will be very happy to hear this! Cars are roughly double in price, so $35K*2-22K = $48K. Let’s hope so.

I don’t understand the math. Why did you multiply by $35k by 2?

See garrity’s comment below. It’s probably more than double, but I give optimistic “roughly” 2X.

The tax to import (buy) a new car into Singapore is 100% (or rather the cars price + freight and such).

So $35k to buy, $35k in “registration”-tax and $22k in incentives.

The price of a car in Singapore is only part of the equation. You also have to tack on COE certificate of entitlement since Singapore is such a tiny island, you have to bid for the right to own/drive a car there. You would have to shell out over $138K to drive a HOnda Accord http://www.honda.com.sg/cars/price_sheet.asp

Oh, that’s how they do it. And here I thought it was “merely” 100% sales tax.

Singapore needs to get off coal.
