Abstract: The government is pushing towards widespread adoption of electric vehicles (EV) in Singapore given the increased awareness and importance of reduction of carbon emission in transport sector. Even with government initiatives in place to encourage higher adoption rate of EV, EV adoption rate still remains low. Since electric vehicles are still a relatively new transport technology, many are hesitant about adopting it. This study will look into the charging and parking choice behaviours of electric vehicle drivers in Singapore and past literature will also be reviewed as reference. This research will utilise questionnaire to gather information on EV drivers charging and parking choices and also find out about non-EV drivers perception towards EV. These findings will help provide insights to the government future plans for charging facilities or other amenities required to help improve the situation of low EV adoption. Overall, the findings indicate that charging choices are dependent on location and costs of charging facilities available. Parking choice behaviour is highly dependent on the charging choice behaviour given the limited availability of charging facilities. As a result, the time when charging is done is also restricted due to the lack of charging facilities. High cost and shortage of charging facilities are found to be the main hurdle for wider EV adoption. Although the findings also reveal the drivers’ positive perception towards EV, it also showed that most drivers think it would take around 10 to 15 years before widespread adoption can be achieved, which greatly exceeds governments EV plans for Singapore.
