23 Jun 2021 | Local News : Singapore


CAT Premium Change Quota No. of bids
A $47,821 ▼  $689    830 1,178
B $56,032 ▼ $4,077   809 983
C $37,000    $2      238 478
E $58,001 ▼ $3,111   265 519

In the second round of bidding for June, Certificate of Entitlement (COE) prices fell across all categories.

The upcoming increase in VES surchages for more pollutive vehicles may have deterred customers from making purchases in the final weeks of June. This might also explain the drop in bids received this session across both Cat A and B compared to the last COE bidding round.
