Singapore Post will be replacing all of its lighter vehicles with electric ones by 2026. For a start, it has begun pilots of two electric scooters and two vans.


The Iona RAP three-wheeler scooter is being considered in the pilot to replace the company's 700 motorcycles and scooters that run on internal combustion engines.

The BYD T3 electric vans, if successful, are also expected to gradually phase out SingPost's 140 petrol vans as their certificates of entitlement expire in the next five years.


The vehicles emit roughly 75 per cent less greenhouse gases compared with their internal combustion engine counterparts. Each charge gives a range of 120km, far in excess of the 15-20km average that postmen travel each day. SingPost's target is to reduce absolute greenhouse gas emissions by 35 per cent by 2030.
