Following Tesla's hint on its supercharger location in Singapore and Hyundai's plans for a manufacturing plant for electric cars, Singapore is gearing up for further electrification.

One of the biggest challenges for electric cars in Singapore is the dominance of high-rise residence that makes charging at home difficult. 

However, Audi Singapore has a solution for that. A partnership with SP Group provides Audi e-tron owners with a seamless charging experience. SP Group is a government-owned electricity and gas distribution company in Singapore.

Under the partnership, SP Group will install AC chargers for e-tron owners living in condominiums and offer 18 months of free charging within the SP Group’s public charging network.

E-tron owners living in in landed properties get 6 months of free charging and enjoy 10% off from the public charging network for the next 30 months.

It is a good way of encouraging the adoption of EVs.
