Many industries in Singapore recorded year-on-year declines in sales in August 2021. According to the Retail Sales Index and Food & Beverage Service Index published by Singapore Department of Statistics in August, 2021, the sales of motor vehicles have even seen a drop of 17.5%, which might be influenced by the lower Certificate of Entitlement (COE) quota this year. In order to win in the more challenging business environment, it is crucial for the industry players to fully understand who the target customers are and how to reach out to them.

YouGov has recently investigated the persona of car buyers in Singapore. Interestingly, this segment is more likely than the public to have a management (17% vs 9%) or an IT role (11% vs 6%). When being asked about their preference on the vehicle type, over half (58%) say they would consider a petrol vehicle (vs 31% of the NatRep) in their next purchase. Having said that, 73% believe electric cars are the future of the motor industry (vs 68% of NatRep).
