Top Electric Vehicles You Can Buy In Pakistan – a comparison of features, specs, and technology

The future of transportation is being redefined by electric cars. While the shift to electric vehicles from fuel-powered cars is slow in Pakistan, the benefits are immense. If more automakers start promoting selling EVs in Pakistan, the country will be able to manage its global warming and climate change issues.

Pakistan’s automotive industry has welcomed electric cars after the ECC ratified the Electric Vehicle policy in mid-2020. The policy laid out the necessary information needed by the manufacturers to justify their launching of EVs in Pakistan. The aim is to have at least 30% of all vehicles running on electricity by 2030 in Pakistan.

Zotye is on its way to launching its cheapest car based on Suzuki Alto’s seventh-generation platform Zotye 100 in Pakistan. Zotye Z100 was launched in China in 2013 as a subcompact hatchback, while its all-electric version was presented in October 2014. Topsun Motors, in collaboration with Zotye China, successfully launched the first electric car automobile company in Pakistan, and its showroom was inaugurated in Lahore on 3rd January 2020 under the implementation of the National Electric Vehicle Policy in Pakistan.

This small hatchback is a two-wheel-drive car with a front-engine, and its small size makes it best on rush roads of Pakistan. Bookings for Zotye Z100 have been started at the Topsun Motors showroom in Lahore, and some of the units can be seen running roads of our country.

The design of the Z100 is quite similar to the Suzuki Alto seventh-generation, having similar headlights on its front bumper. The vertical chrome grill is designed on the center of the Bonnet, while fog lights are also equipped with it assisting you in extreme weather conditions.

4. Audi e-Tron

Dive into the exciting world of electromobility with the Audi e-Tron and help shape the future. The first all-electric SUV is your sporty, everyday, and safe companion for a new era.

Performance

You need to experience for yourself the starting performance of the Audi e-Tron (combined power consumption in kWh/100 km *: 26.2-22.6 (WLTP); 24.6-23.7 (NEDC); CO2 emissions combined in g/km: 0). Whether you accelerate from a standstill or overtake on the motorway – the power of a maximum of 300 kilowatts unfolds immediately. Even in reverse, you will feel a high level of torque. Optimum traction ensures a new generation of the Quattro drive, which can be switched on when needed. The result: you have full control over the vehicle.

Looks

Technology

In the Audi e-Tron, you can rely on intelligent technologies and focus on traffic. Important information and notifications are available in the standard Audi virtual cockpit and the top infotainment system, MMI navigation plus. Various driver assistance systems ensure your safety.

With the Audi e-Tron, you can negotiate distances from Hamburg to Düsseldorf without stopping to charge. The high degree of recuperation, i.e., braking energy recovery, plays a considerable part in this. During much more than 90 percent of all decelerations, the Audi e-Tron recharges itself via its e-machines. In combination with the electrohydraulically integrated brake control system, which we are the first manufacturer worldwide to use in an electrically driven passenger vehicle, the electric SUV exploits its maximum potential for recuperation.
