Heard from a SE that the VES starting 1 Jan will only take into account CO2, and NOx and PM2.5 will only kick in starting Jun next year.

 

Not sure how true this is because I haven't been able to find any official source on this.

 

Anyone can confirm ?

Singaporeans have been programmed to think for themselves, if I don't benefit then I won't let others benefit. Even if I benefit, I also won't let others benefit.

 

Simple.

 

Please keep that thot to yourself. 

 

Singaporean and the mass majority are a community that tries to bond together. While how we behave are shape by events and our background.

 

We sometimes are no wiser to get a solution and hence the perception of silo mentality. Not for self-fish reason as what you have indicated.

the bandings and rebates/surcharges for VES already set and confirmed.

the press release was in Mar 17 to give 9 months notice liao

don't think will defer for NOX and PM

but never say never

the current LTA flip policy faster than flip prata

Then why we hardly see any new altis when coe is 90k perod?

If there are 3k bidder but only 2k quota, how to gef $1 coe? Communicate to request 1k from the 3k bidder not to bid? Will u volunteer to be that 1k?

We see more Altis and cheap car than those more expensive car. You don't see many Accord and Camry during SKE to SKK prefix period. Because this group of buying go and buy a cheaper alternative instead.

yes it is true that cars registered from 1st jan 2018 to 30th jun 2018 will be exempted from PM banding, as announced by NEA in June.

 

meaning cars will be graded based on the other 4 pollutants in the first 6 months next year.

Most of the current conti models and some Japanese and Korean makes are using the more fuel efficient direct injection system, hence, they will not be exempted from Nox and PM bands. The downside of direct injection due to its lean burning nature, more Nox is produced. Port injection is slowly being phased out by most car manufacturers as they seek to improve fuel efficiency. Most of the small capacity direct injection turbo engines below 1.4l typically emit Nox that will be above the neutral band even though they have low Co2 emissions. Guess you can't have the cake and eat it.

I meant to say the lean burning nature ofr direct injection engines, more PM is produced as the fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber and does not have sufficient time to evaporate and mix.

Hi All

 

With the CEVS now going to expire in Dec 17 and replaced by VES scheme, which of the Japanese Cars qualify for this?

 

I don't see any Promotion based on this new Scheme.

 

Any insights about this?

The purpose is to encourage more green cars. 

 

They cannot be just taking away the CEVS rebates and not give something back right?

 

I hope they will come out with the right scheme soon and make the Hybrid cars cheaper. CHR is coming in with BM and hope this rebates can help to soften the price. If BM sells the CHR like their Prius (@$132K....they crazy right?), then CHR will continue to be a PI thing.

 

LTA/NEA now on December leave?
