In Parliament on Wednesday (Mar 3), MP Xie Yao Quan asked about the Ministry of Transport's plans to drive the adoption of electric vehicles for commercial use. Specifically, he asked about taxis and private-hire cars, which number about 90,000 right now. Mr Xie wanted to know how the ministry will work with operators on issues such as licensing requirements and charging infrastructure. He also asked about similar strategies for the logistics sector, given the increase in e-commerce and movement of goods on Singapore roads.
