dc.description.abstractThis paper explores the economic viability of the electrical conversion of motorcycles in Singapore. The vehicle market is regulated through Certificate of Entitlement (COE) 1 and road tax. These mechanisms do not cover converted electric motorcycles yet. Large-scale conversion allows for the production of 2500 motorcycles per year with an estimated workforce of 20 people. Electric motorcycles are cheaper to run compared to ICE motorcycles and these cost savings can recoup the price of the motorcycle in a short period. A policy innovation in this area could further spur large scale electric motorcycle conversion and make it a viable business.
