In total, CapitaLand will provide 12 of the 47 charging stations available in the country, the press release added.

The EV charging stations will be accessible to all owners of such vehicles, and owners will need to register via the Greenlots mobile app to start using the stations, it said.

"We understand that the availability of charging stations is key to greater adoption of EVs, which help reduce carbon emissions. As property owners, we therefore recognise the instrumental role we can play in helping to make charging infrastructure more accessible,” said Mr Tan Seng Chai, Group Chief Corporate Officer at CapitaLand and Chairman of its Sustainability Steering Committee.

The company added it is looking to make home charging stations available at its upcoming residential developments.
