Open category COE price hits record high of S$110,524; premiums rise across the board
SINGAPORE — Certificate of Entitlement (COE) prices reached the highest level ever on Wednesday (July 6) when the premiums for vehicles in the open category closed at S$110,524.
This surpasses the premiums in the then Category Four classification in December 1994 that cost S$110,500.
Premiums also rose across the board across all other categories.
COE prices for large cars (above 1,600cc or 97kW) or fully electric cars with output over 110kW went up from S$106,001 in the previous bidding exercise to S$107,800.
Premiums for two categories — for large cars as well as in the open category — have crossed the six-digit mark since the tender exercises in June.
Premiums for small cars (up to 1,600cc & 97kW) or fully electric cars with output of up to 110kW went up by 4.02 per cent to S$78,001.
For goods vehicles and buses, COE prices climbed 1.87 per cent to S$54,001.
In the motorcycle category, premiums went up to S$10,889, compared to S$10,302 in the previous bidding exercise.
