Diesel Car Registration to End in 2025

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has declared an end to new diesel car and taxi registrations from 2025.

New registrations for diesel cars and taxis won’t be possible after 1 January 2025.

Current diesel vehicles can still renew their certificates but will face a rise in road taxes.

Efforts to push drivers towards cleaner vehicles in Singapore are clear.

The policy exempts classic and vintage car imports from these latest rules.

Here are some key points to note:

  • Registration stop starts on 1 January 2025.
  • Higher road taxes after renewal aim to lower diesel vehicle renewal rates.
  • Classic and Vintage Vehicle Scheme imports are not subject to the new rules.

The Drive Towards Sustainable Transport

New diesel car and taxi registrations have stayed below 1% since 2021.

Cleaner energy vehicle options are already becoming popular in the market.

The shift shows the declining popularity of diesel due to eco-friendly choices.

Electric Vehicles (EVs) are now seen as the leaders in sustainable transport.
