Singapore will no longer allow the registration of diesel – powered cars and taxis from 2025, five years ahead of previously scheduled. This serves as part of the republic’s plan to reduce emissions and encourage the adoption of electric vehicles.

The LTA statement says, “These measures will support Singapore’s targets to cease new diesel car and taxi registrations from 2025, require all new car and taxi registrations to be of cleaner-energy models from 2030, and have all vehicles run on cleaner energy by 2040.”
