If the previous method was used, the quote would have been 8,695. This move is to further reduce the quarter-on-quarter volatility of COE supply. 3,144 COEs will be made available per month in this quarter, with Cat A and B set to have 1,010 and 860 quotes respectively.Editors%2 Fimages%2 F1674200130419 A31This is an increase from the baseline of 915 and 817 from the previous quarter.

Cat C and E will see a reduction in quotas, from the 137 and 291 of the previous quarter, to the 86 and 259 of the upcoming quarter respectively.

An increased supply should lower prices for Categories A and B, and the inverse is also true, so expect there to be slight increases in the prices for Categories C and E.Editors%2 Fimages%2 F1674200146364 Ec35 3 2To recap, the COE quota consists of the following components: 25% of the replacement COEs from vehicles deregistered in the twelve-month period of January 2022 to December 2022; Provision for 0.25% per annum growth for Category C based on the Category C vehicle population as at 31 December 2022; and Adjustments for changes in the taxi population, replacement of commercial vehicles under the Early Turnover Scheme, and expired COEs.

The next quota announcement for the bidding period of May 2023 to July 2023 will be made in April 2023.
