Abstract: This paper attempts to identify the factors affecting adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) from the perspective of Singaporean Nanyang Technological University (NTU) students. Based on the data collected from a survey, the paper found that cost is the most important factor, which is followed by charging facilities. Furthermore, framing EVs as an environmental issue is found to be ineffective and most respondents are apathetic to the role of EVs in sustainable development and the Smart Nation initiative. The paper then recommends policies to address the issues raised namely creating awareness campaigns, strengthening of charging infrastructure and the provision of subsidies. The authors believe EVs can contribute to Singapore’s sustainable development and Smart Nation initiative and thus efforts to increase adoption of EVs is imperative.
