SP Group is expanding its electric vehicle (EV) charger network in Singapore to 200 points, including 52 DC fast chargers.
The company says the DC fast chargers will be able to charge an EV in 30 minutes in the Central Business District, Orchard shopping area, the island resort of Sentosa and a planning area in the east region called Paya Lebar.
SP is hoping to install 1,000 charging points, of which will be 250 DC chargers by the end of 2020.
SP’s head of strategic development, Goh Chee Kiong, says the network will reduce “range anxiety and shorten the time needed to charge the vehicles”.
Drivers can use the SP Utilities mobile app to search for the nearest charging points, receive updates on their charging sessions and make a payment.
Landlords involved in the project include CapitalLand Group, City Developments, Lendlease, Resorts World Sentosa and Soilbuild Group Holdings.
