The electric vehicle charging service, Shell Recharge, will be available at 10 Shell petrol stations in Singapore by October 2019 or about 20 per cent of its retail network in the city-state, the company said in a statement.
The stations will be at the following locations: Newton Hooper, Alexandra, Yishun, Ang Mo Kio, Paya Lebar PIE, Choa Chu Kang, Boon Lay, Sengkang, Havelock, and Bukit Batok West.
For S$0.55per kWh, the chargers typically provide from 0 percent to 80 percent charge in about 30 minutes and are compatible with most electric vehicles in Singapore.
The population of electrified cars (electric, plug-in hybrid, and hybrid cars) is the highest they’ve ever been and continues to grow quickly, so it’s a crucial first step for Shell which becomes one of the few public EV charging providers here.
A Shell-commissioned study on electric vehicle consumer behavior showed that 52 percent of Singaporeans are deterred to buy or use an electric car as they think there are not enough charging stations in Singapore, the company said.
The transition away from cars powered by combustion engines will take decades, a view that Shell itself supports. The company aims to provide lower-emissions fuels in addition to electric charging in the future.
