Where to charge my EV? What do I do while waiting for my to charge?
The biggest hurdle that’s stopping many Singaporeans from switching to an electric car is the existing charging infrastructure and charging time.
While the Singapore government has made countless steps to overcome this problem, some of you might still not be convinced. Furthermore, the charging time depends on a number of factors like the type of EV, type of charger used and size of the battery.
For example, the BYD e6 takes less than 1.5 hours to charge from 5% to 80% on an AC charger, and just 1 hour on a DC charger, while it can take more than double (or even triple) the time for other EV brands.
So what do you do while waiting for your EV to charge?
