SINGAPORE — A total of 36 new electric vehicle (EV) charging points will be deployed at 12 suburban malls under Frasers Property Retail located across the island, such as Waterway Point and Northpoint City, from September this year.

Each of the malls will have up to five electric vehicle charging points, Frasers Property Retail said in a statement on Monday (March 28), adding that the move reflects its “commitment to becoming a net-zero carbon corporation by 2050.

This announcement comes a few weeks after the authorities announced on March 3 that all Housing and Development Board (HDB) towns will be ready for electric vehicles by 2025, with at least three charging points installed in these 2,000 car parks by then.

Frasers said on Monday that it will be working alongside service providers Charge+, SP Group, and Tesla to roll out the stations at its malls in the north, central and eastern regions of Singapore in two phases.

Mr Tan Kee Yong, the chief operating officer of Frasers Property Retail, said the availability and accessibility of charging stations is “key to greater adoption of EVs, especially when drivers can enjoy the added convenience of charging their vehicles on fast EV chargers when they go about their daily routine”.

According to Frasers, the charging points will allow drivers to fully charge their vehicles in as little as 30 minutes.

The first phase of the roll out, expected to be completed by September this year, will see 27 charging points set up at eight malls, and will include the first deployment of Charge+ Turbo chargers and a Tesla Supercharger station in Waterway Point shopping mall to serve the Punggol area.

Aside from Waterway Point, the other malls that will be included in this initial phase are:

  • Northpoint City (north and south wings) in Yishun
  • Tiong Bahru Plaza
  • Century Square in Tampines
  • Causeway Point in Woodlands
  • White Sands in Pasir Ris
  • Tampines 1
  • Centrepoint at Orchard Road

Frasers did not release details of when the second phase will be completed, and TODAY understands that discussions are still underway.

The malls under the second phase are:

  • Changi City Point
  • Eastpoint Mall in Simei
  • Hougang Mall

Mr Tan said Frasers plans to roll out more green initiatives as it pushes towards its net-zero carbon goals, but did not elaborate.

Earlier this month, the Ministry of Transport said in Parliament during a joint segment on the Singapore Green Plan that it plans to reduce carbon emissions from land transport by 80 per cent from its peak in 2016 "by or around the mid-century".

Land transport emissions peaked at 7.7 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent in 2016. An 80 per cent reduction will bring equivalent carbon emissions to 1.54 million tonnes.
