Happy Lunar New Year to you! With effect from the February 2014 first open bidding exercise, COE categorization will be based on Horse Power. Category A is for cars with engine capacity up to 1,600 cc and Maximum Power Output up to 130 bhp (97 kW) while Category B is for cars with engine capacity above 1,600 cc or Maximum Power Output above 130 bhp (97 kW).
Do you think the quota premium will fall for Category A? Now many luxury makes are bringing new diesel model with lower Horse Power to qualify for Category A. Let's observe the outcomes in the next few bidding exercises.
