We have been hearing for quite some time that electric cars are making their way to the Pakistani market. In this race, a Pakistani company Super Power has already unveiled it’s two electric cars priced at Rs 600,000 and Rs 650,000.
At the same time, many Chinese manufacturers are also eying the Pakistani market to introduce hybrid and electric cars and it seems like there is going to be an entry of another player. As per initial reports, a top Chinese automobile brand is thinking about launching its dealership network in Pakistan either by the end of 2017 or next year.
The car costs around $9000 (Rs. 943,425) exclusive of taxes and possesses a range of 120 KM and the maximum speed of 60 KM. Unlike many 800cc to 1000cc cars in Pakistan, the electric cars would flaunt modern features from power windows to rear camera display to internet connectivity. Reportedly, the new cars would reduce the cost of covering 1KM as compared to the other vehicles to Rs. 1.
The rapidly deteriorating global environment calls for energy alternatives and fuel consumption. In this situation, electric cars present a good alternative to the traditional automobiles as they don’t have a carbon footprint and are thus eco-friendly.Earlier this year, Mian Mansha also revealed that Nishat Group is trying to convince Hyundai, the South Korean automotive manufacturer, to bring electric and hybrid cars in Pakistan.
