SINGAPORE
Singapore has reached a point where widespread EV ownership can begin to be considered by many car drivers – which is why current, or prospective, electric motorists should head down to Suntec City right now.

EV Weekend, Singapore’s first and largest electric vehicle showcase, has returned for its second iteration, and kicks off at Suntec City from today – November 8 – until November 13, 2022. The show is located at Suntec City’s North Atrium, the mall section between Suntec Towers 1 and 2, near Olivia and Co cafe, and Superpark gym. It runs daily from 10am to 10pm. Here’s a useful Google Maps link to point you in the right direction, literally.

Find out everything you need to know about EVs

CarBuyer’s special EV Weekend E-Book will tell you all you need to know about EVs in Singapore


Stepping into electric motoring can be intimidating, that’s why EV Weekend exists: To allow car buyers to touch, feel, see, and experience EVs, as well as arming them with the knowledge needed to make the change in a savvy way. 

To get started on your EV journey, you can hit up EV Weekend’s home page, register and download our 30-page guide to EV ownership in Singapore, which covers everything from the cost of ownership vs gasoline cars, the pros and cons of EVs, and more. 


EV Weekend 2022 will also have a special plenary session on November 10 from 1500h featuring two panels with industry experts, charge point operators, and EV owners, covering questions and topics relating to the current and future of EVs.


A range of EVs to experience 


One of EV Weekend’s key draws is that it features a range of EVs all in one place. For example, you won’t be able to see the key rivals the Polestar 2 and Tesla Model 3 anywhere else, nor the Peugeot e-2008 and Opel Mokka-e. Visiting EV Weekend, you’ll be able to see – literally – that there are EVs out there to fit almost any need or budget.

In this case, this year’s edition sees eight vehicles on display at Suntec from seven different car brands. Click on the link below to read more about them, including specifications, as well as CarBuyer’s own reviews and videos about them.

Where the real life-changing experience happens with EVs is of course, behind the wheel, and you’ll get the chance to do that at EV Weekend 2022.

You can also test drive most of the cars shown at Suntec – including the BYD Atto 3, Opel Mokka-e, Polestar 2, Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model Y – by visiting the EV Weekend homepage and following the test drive registration link inside – but be sure to register quickly, as slots are limited through the five days of the show.

Tesla Model Y

EV Weekend 2022 also sees the first time American electric carmaker Tesla is offering test drives of its Model Y SUV – already a best-seller in Singapore in September – to the public (pre-registration is required).

A happy test driver from EV Weekend 2021’s edition


As the test drive experience from attendees at EV Weekend 2021 show, really experiencing an EV from behind the wheel is a key factor in convincing drivers of the switch away from combustion engine car with their quietness, smoothness, and lack of tailpipe emissions. 

Mildred, 32, who works in sales and test drove the Mini Electric at EV Weekend 2021 said : “The car is fun to drive, very zippy and very quiet. The event is a good initiative, because I got to see many EVs in just one day, and test drive as multiple EVs.”
