Cat B (car above 1600cc or 130bhp, and EV with more than 110kW) received 1,163 bids for 655 COEs and its premium dipped by $9,662. Category B COE closed at $102,338.

Cat C (goods vehicle and bus) received 366 bids for 196 COEs and its premium increased by $4,000. Category C COE closed at $72,001.

Cat D (motorcycle) received 717 bids for 530 COEs and its premium decreased by a token $19. Category D COE closed at $9,290.

Lastly, Cat E (all vehicles except motorcycle) received 305 bids for 163 COEs and dipped by $8,903. Category E COE closed at $100,101.

Jason Lim, managing director of BMW authorised agent Eurokars Auto, told Motorist: “There was a high level of bid submission, which was from Singapore Motorshow orders. However, it seems that the bidding strength was not really there.”

Nicholas Wong, chief executive officer of Honda authorised agent Kah Motor, told Motorist: “Both Cat A and B results are within my expectations. Cat A didn’t drop by a lot, Cat B dropped by more, about $10k. This was because in the previous round, Cat B went up by a lot, over $26k. Even though we had three weeks for this round of bidding, the market was quite soft. It was back to normal bookings.”
