In the age of technological advancements and promoting eco-friendly products, electric vehicles are considered an excellent option to replace conventional cars. EVs are operated by batteries, which will eventually end our dependency on fossil fuel.

According to OCE World, Refined Petroleum is Pakistan’s top import, so if we promote EVs in the country, we can eventually replace them with renewable energy.

Over the past few years, every other country has been switching towards electric vehicles to tackle global warming and boost renewable energy.

In Pakistan, recently, we have seen a lot of companies that are trying to enter the sector. Companies like Jolta and MS Group are introducing 70 cc style electric bikes. Elektra is trying to enter the market by launching retro-style café racers and sports-style e-bikes to catch the market.

Talking about electric cars, we have seen MG has entered the Pakistani auto industry with its MG ZS EV electric car. On 14 August, Dice Foundation introduced a locally produced electric vehicle dubbed as NUR-E 75.
