There is still lots of backlog to fulfill, especially those who booked when Cat A was at $26K.

Car distributors will not bid aggressively, else it will eat into their profit margin.

But with a 3 weeks gap this round, prices will likely head north, with limited rise up to 10%

The trends for CAT B n E looks scary

Your little hard earned money are being pitted against large venture capital MNC which have almost unlimited funding from investors worldwide. 

 

You think you can stand a chance? Our COE system was not designed for such disruptive biz and once again, our systems have shown that it favors the super rich as well as large corporations who are determined to start their biz here regardless of the cost. 

 

My advice is either you go BMW altogether and let these corporations run the show, and you subscribe to their ride svcs, or u keep buying and throwing those 9+ yrs old cars if you really need to put your hands on a steering wheel and drive a car   

 

This is what a perfect country looks like. Opps, I cannot complain too much, else some conman... I mean...'influcencer' whose name sounds like NAS storage would come here and belittle sinkies for being 'lack of perspective'

You have a choice to go for a brand new Cat A car.

 

Perodua Bezza - $64K

Mitsubishi Attrage - $65K

Hyundai Accent - $69K

 

They serve the same purpose as your Cat B car and can sit 5 comfortably.

 

Another option is to get a 2009 Cat B car with renewed 10 years COE like the Nissan Teana that will set you back by a mere  $55K, or if status is critical for you,  a 2009 Mercedes E200 W212 at $78K

You sure the 3 can sit 5 'comfortably'? and can they still move with say,,5x  80kg guys on board? 

 

Well your counter is cold comfort to anyone la. Instead of KPKB at gov for their crazy COE system, you are telling pple that hey, don't be sad. I know you were able to afford a Kia Sorento SX or Opel Insignia 2L back late last year.

 

Well you still have options for a new car today ya.. See the 3 choices above... All 3 still comes with new car smell for you....blah blah..blah...

Having such a negative outlook gets you nowhere.

Different people, different strokes.

Tap water or bottled Evian water serve the same purpose - quench your thirst

A burger at MacDonalds or Shake Shack both fill your stomach.

If a 999cc Perodua Kenari can sit 5 pax and bring a family on holiday to Genting Highlands, why can't a Mitsubishi Attrage, Perodua Bezza or Hyundai Accent.

You know - I have a friend who never dines at hawker centres because he says the food is unhygienic, and only dines at restaurants.

There are some people like him, high up there and aloof, who feel that the government owes them a car, nothing less than a Cat B car to be precise.

Read the article. There are some interesting insights/speculations on the private hire companies' strategies.

While he thinks that COEs will come down, one aspect not cover is the COE supply trend...

Credit:ST
Certificate of entitlement (COE) premiums are on the rise. Compared with the start of the year, car COEs have climbed by 28 to 59 per cent to $33,199 (cars up to 1,600cc), $48,000 (cars above 1,600cc) and $52,410 (open).

Folks looking to buy a new car might be alarmed. Should they rush out to buy before prices rise further?

In a word, no. Because doing so will only fuel the premium hike. Time and again, we have seen similar market responses sending prices even higher and resulting in a self-fulfilling prophecy.

The right thing to do is to resist the temptation and wait it out. What goes up will come down and COE prices are no exception.

Let those who choose to succumb to fear flock to the showrooms. They might drive prices up, but it will be temporary and at their expense. Once demand from panic buying is soaked up, prices will head south.

More so, since the factors fanning the COE flame in recent months have little to do with retail demand. More likely than not, they were linked to competition between the two private-hire operators - Grab and Gojek - here.

Let those who choose to succumb to fear flock to the showrooms. They might drive prices up, but it will be temporary and at their expense. Once demand from panic buying is soaked up, prices will head south.

Changes to regulations governing the private-hire industry are expected in the next couple of months. Operators could be expecting these changes to have an impact on their businesses and are rushing to grow their fleets now - before new rules are announced.

There are two possible scenarios ahead.

One, if these new rules are what the industry expects, COE prices will ease because they will no longer be able to operate the way they have been, which drove them to rush for COEs in the first place.

Two, if the new rules are not what the industry expects, COE prices will also ease because players would have "bought forward" and no longer need to secure COEs as aggressively as before.

Consumers who join the rush now will run the risk of facing negative equity - when the residual value of the car is less than the balance of the owner's loan - when a correction in COE prices comes (and it will come).

Many who bought their cars three to five years ago are facing this situation. Some are scrapping their cars prematurely and replacing them with new ones with lower COEs. This is a costly exercise, even if it appears to be one which allows consumers to cut losses.

It would be far more prudent to wait for the current frenzy to die down before making your way to the showroom.

The considerations are similar for car owners looking to extend the lifespan of their current rides. Some are looking to pay the prevailing quota premium (PQP) now, even though there are several months left before their vehicle's COE expires.

They should likewise resist doing so. Especially if the expiring COE is a relatively inexpensive one. They should instead enjoy the use of their low-COE car right up to the last possible day.

If PQP - a moving average of quota premiums - turns out to be higher than they are now, so be it.

Scrapping a car before its run-out date has a cost too. For instance, if a car has an annual depreciation of $7,500, deregistering it six months earlier would incur an implicit cost of $3,750.

Will COE climb $3,750 over the next six months, after having risen by an average of $10,000 since the beginning of the year? Well, even if it does rise by more than $3,750, the cost to those who wait will not be significant.

At the same time, those who choose to wait stand the chance of paying a lower PQP should premiums soften.

And which direction premiums head in the next few months will depend largely on how consumers behave in the next few weeks.

As for the irrational exuberance of private-hire operators, upcoming regulatory changes will hopefully rein them in.

Soon to be announced regulations for Private Hire, is the age limit of the cars used. Max up to 10 years old. You won't get to sit in any COE private hire cars in time to come.

A substantial number of private hire cars are now COE cars.

What does this mean? There would be a rush to renew the fleet, leading to higher COE prices.

I am sure the writer of the ST article knows about this, just that it's politically incorrect to put it in writing prematurely.

That's intriguing.  If that is implemented, it will have an impact on PHV landscape since the cost of new car ownership and new car rental are much higher compared to COE cars.  This will also continue to drive up COE as the PHV drivers and Grab/Go-Jek partners switch to newer cars.  The PHV drivers' income could drop as a result.

Soon to be announced regulations for Private Hire, is the age limit of the cars used. Max up to 10 years old. You won't get to sit in any COE private hire cars in time to come.

A substantial number of private hire cars are now COE cars.

What does this mean? There would be a rush to renew the fleet, leading to higher COE prices.

I am sure the writer of the ST article knows about this, just that it's politically incorrect to put it in writing prematurely.

 

means all the above 10 yr cars need to be replaced = Grab & Gojek will cheong to buy more COE now then later

 

u telling me, COE wont cheong ?

How high COE will surge, depends on how aggressively the private hire rental companies bid. 

 

The almost empty halls of Cars @ Expo last weekend is crystal clear evidence that people are not buying.

The new PHV rulings are likely to synchronise the service levels of taxis versus PHVs.  It should be this set of rulings that make the taxi operators see red over PHV companies as the rulings drive up the business overheads.

 

https://www.lta.gov....nd-the-lta.html

 

If LTA goes after the PHV car age, it will drive up COE demand and price for true car buyers, pushes down the take-home income of the PHV drivers, and reduce the availability of PHV cars on the road.  Since election is coming soon, logically LTA should not be imposing this rule that benefits nobody.

Go Jek increasing Their fleet with 1000+ new Opel Insignia..
Besides PHV and real car buyers pushing COE prices up... there are 2 more factors..

1) Many backlogs
2) Dealers bid for keeping. That’s why u see “immediate registration” from some dealer’s offer.

Will COE climb $3,750 over the next six months, after having risen by an average of $10,000 since the beginning of the year? Well, even if it does rise by more than $3,750, the cost to those who wait will not be significant.

Last round cat A went up by $4,040, cat B went up by $4,898, cat E went up by $4,201. So yes. It climbed up by more than $3,750 in 2 weeks lol.

Always preferred Dr Winston Lee's content, but the poor doc no longer writes after he was prosecuted in court for molest.

He should be allowed to write and molest all the cars he wants, legally. The 911 would be the first he'd place his hands on.

Credit:ST
Certificate of entitlement (COE) premiums are on the rise. Compared with the start of the year, car COEs have climbed by 28 to 59 per cent to $33,199 (cars up to 1,600cc), $48,000 (cars above 1,600cc) and $52,410 (open).

Folks looking to buy a new car might be alarmed. Should they rush out to buy before prices rise further?

In a word, no. Because doing so will only fuel the premium hike. Time and again, we have seen similar market responses sending prices even higher and resulting in a self-fulfilling prophecy.

The right thing to do is to resist the temptation and wait it out. What goes up will come down and COE prices are no exception.

Let those who choose to succumb to fear flock to the showrooms. They might drive prices up, but it will be temporary and at their expense. Once demand from panic buying is soaked up, prices will head south.

More so, since the factors fanning the COE flame in recent months have little to do with retail demand. More likely than not, they were linked to competition between the two private-hire operators - Grab and Gojek - here.

Let those who choose to succumb to fear flock to the showrooms. They might drive prices up, but it will be temporary and at their expense. Once demand from panic buying is soaked up, prices will head south.

Changes to regulations governing the private-hire industry are expected in the next couple of months. Operators could be expecting these changes to have an impact on their businesses and are rushing to grow their fleets now - before new rules are announced.

There are two possible scenarios ahead.

One, if these new rules are what the industry expects, COE prices will ease because they will no longer be able to operate the way they have been, which drove them to rush for COEs in the first place.

Two, if the new rules are not what the industry expects, COE prices will also ease because players would have "bought forward" and no longer need to secure COEs as aggressively as before.

Consumers who join the rush now will run the risk of facing negative equity - when the residual value of the car is less than the balance of the owner's loan - when a correction in COE prices comes (and it will come).

Many who bought their cars three to five years ago are facing this situation. Some are scrapping their cars prematurely and replacing them with new ones with lower COEs. This is a costly exercise, even if it appears to be one which allows consumers to cut losses.

It would be far more prudent to wait for the current frenzy to die down before making your way to the showroom.

The considerations are similar for car owners looking to extend the lifespan of their current rides. Some are looking to pay the prevailing quota premium (PQP) now, even though there are several months left before their vehicle's COE expires.

They should likewise resist doing so. Especially if the expiring COE is a relatively inexpensive one. They should instead enjoy the use of their low-COE car right up to the last possible day.

If PQP - a moving average of quota premiums - turns out to be higher than they are now, so be it.

Scrapping a car before its run-out date has a cost too. For instance, if a car has an annual depreciation of $7,500, deregistering it six months earlier would incur an implicit cost of $3,750.

Will COE climb $3,750 over the next six months, after having risen by an average of $10,000 since the beginning of the year? Well, even if it does rise by more than $3,750, the cost to those who wait will not be significant.

At the same time, those who choose to wait stand the chance of paying a lower PQP should premiums soften.

And which direction premiums head in the next few months will depend largely on how consumers behave in the next few weeks.

As for the irrational exuberance of private-hire operators, upcoming regulatory changes will hopefully rein them in.

 

Wah, both his two possible scenarios lead to the price drop of COE. I clap for him. 

 

Then ask car owner to enjoy their car to the last possible day, and if have to pay high PQP, "so be it".  [hur]

 

And ask whether COE will climb $3750 in six months??? Did he just wake up from hibernate last week?  :lll._.:

Agree that he has not factored in the elephant in the room - the COE quota reduction.

 

 

For those w/o ST premium account, let me share some ways that you can read the entire article.  It worked most of the time for me, but not 100%

 

1) Search the title of the article on google.  you may use "Don't rush to push COE prices higher" in this example.  Sometimes, the same article may show up on other websites like sgcarmart, mothership, todayonline, etc.  So you can read the full article there.

 

2) Again, for this example, "Don't rush to push COE prices higher" don't really show up on any of the sites mentioned....so you may add "pressreader" in front of the search....and you can read the original article on pressreader.  See example below

I think the COE supply will soon balance itself in this '0' growth policy, hence won't rise too much.

1) If coming PHV policy restrict old vehicle to qualify for Grab, etc, then likely these owner would scrap their old vehicle.

2) Recent years many renew their COE for 5 years, these once reach the deadline won't be able to renew and need to scrap.

3) WayDrive Holding took over Lion City Rental in Jan'19 with 10,000 vehicles (of which 8,000 are 2 years and older). These vehicles are acquired during high COE time, I think they would scrap it as no PHV driver would want use "old" car and no point WayDrive Holding holding to depreciating assets.

 

Considering the number of vehicles being scrap, or forced to scrap, I think will bring some relieve to the quota.

I don't know about waiting to last day to renew COE but a lot already renewed when Cat A was 26k and Cat B was 33k.

This is even for cars that are only due next year.

Need to differentiate what's an opinion and fact.

Fact is the recycled coe is lower and got lower YoY.

Opinion is you think the cars of 3-5yrs will be scrapped.

I think the COE supply will soon balance itself in this '0' growth policy, hence won't rise too much.

1) If coming PHV policy restrict old vehicle to qualify for Grab, etc, then likely these owner would scrap their old vehicle.

2) Recent years many renew their COE for 5 years, these once reach the deadline won't be able to renew and need to scrap.

3) WayDrive Holding took over Lion City Rental in Jan'19 with 10,000 vehicles (of which 8,000 are 2 years and older). These vehicles are acquired during high COE time, I think they would scrap it as no PHV driver would want use "old" car and no point WayDrive Holding holding to depreciating assets.

 

Considering the number of vehicles being scrap, or forced to scrap, I think will bring some relieve to the quota.

More people relying on PHV for travelling also means fewer people buying their own cars. Owning a car is no longer one of the 5 "C's" for youngsters.

AD is also hit by falling quota and increasing competition.
