The best executive electric vehicles (EVs) in Singapore

CarBuyer Team

We take a look at the leading contenders in the executive EV class in Singapore, including highlights from BMW, Polestar and Tesla

Why you should trust us: is the online version of CarBuyer Singapore, which is currently the only homegrown car magazine on newsstands here and has been in circulation since 1997, pointing out the good, bad, and ugly of Singapore’s car market.

What makes these cars ‘the best’? :

Cars here have been tested and voted on by CarBuyer’s editorial team. We have a combined experience of more than 70 years in the industry and have tested thousands of cars. In short, you can rely on us to tell you what’s worth your time and dollars – and what’s not.


Welcome back to another instalment of Best Of, a regularly updated guide series where we pick the best cars in each segment to buy here in Singapore.

The number of electric vehicle (EV) models in Singapore have grown pretty substantially over the past year, such that we now have enough of a selection to group them into categories based on price and body style.

Our previous Best Of guide for EVs covered mainstream models, at that time defined as under S$200,000 inclusive of COE, but will probably be redefined as those that will come under COE Category A once the re-categorisation exercise for EVs comes into effect in May 2022.

In any case, the majority of EVs will remain in Cat B, given that most of them will breach the 110kW power threshold. As well, it is usually the top-end premium brands like Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz that are embracing EVs faster than the mainstream brands here, given that their customer base are typically more receptive and accepting of EV technology than mainstream buyers.

There are also new EV brands in the market like Polestar and Tesla who are jostling for the pie, and aim to win over customers with their fresh approach and emphasis on groundbreaking tech.

While many of the EVs currently on sale take the form of crossovers and SUVs, there are also a number of EVs that are of the three-box sedan variety, which will appeal to executives wanting something that looks more traditional while still offering the latest EV tech.

We take a look at three of such executive EV contenders currently available in Singapore, and the thoughts from the CarBuyer team on what they bring to the table in this fast-growing EV market.
