Pakistan introduces EV Policy to support the new industry

Climate change is wreaking havoc across the world and many countries, including Pakistan, want to tackle it. Pakistan is among the top five countries most affected by climate change.

In an effort to play its part, Pakistan has formed an Electric Vehicle Policy to facilitate the transformation of the transport sector from fuel-based motorcycles, cars, buses and trucks to electric vehicles. The policy gives incentives on duties and taxes to help businesses start industrial assembly. Pakistan hopes to electrify 30% of the total vehicles in the country by 2030.

According to the Ministry of Climate Change, 42% of the air pollution in the country comes from traffic. Electrifying 30% of the vehicles could save Pakistan approximately $2 billion on oil imports every year.

EV Technologies Consultant CEO and the person representing SZS Group in the joint venture with POF Wah for assembling electric buses, Shaukat Qureshi said electrification of cars will help reduce carbon emissions that trigger climate change and lower dollar import bills. He claims that according to a study his organization conducted, a motorcyclist switching to an EV bike will save Rs4,000 on fuel, electric car user can save up to Rs25,000 and EV bus companies can save between Rs600,000 to Rs900,000 monthly. He says a lithium battery serves as fuel for EVs and they now have a life of above five years and charging costs very little.

He added that an electric car comparable to hatchbacks Alto and Cultus, under the present duty and tax regime after the introduction of the EV Policy, can cost as low as Rs1.2 million.

    I think EV is need of the hour. Now is the time to switch over to an environment friendly and more economical option. The steps taken by the govt are applaudable.

    Very good discussion o. It’s need of an hour to go for EV or other hybrid source of power to run most of vehicles for economic and climate reasons. One thing to noted though, better quality would matter for its longevity.

    A very good discussion on various aspects except cost of battery replacement after some time. The quality of battery would matter.

    Dear all viewer,
    I think the future is on the way, As a living person we must welcome to the future,
    and future is the Electric Car and it is as same as CNG, most of us convert our vehicle in CNG and now we have no
    CNG fuel available in Winter and most of the days in year around, kindly consider the new era in coming, So, keep walking with future technologies, please.

    We have to educate and support to our Universities kids to work on EV motors and batteries: InshaAllah the more we learned & experiment on this subject we could come to a better solution.

    with no electricity and prolonged blackouts, both the ev car and the ev man will be sitting at home using hand fans and cursing the government for lack of basic facilities that the looters deprived the population for the the last 50 years.
