VIDEO: Pakistan’s first electric vehicle finally launched
The Government plans to localize EV manufacturing in the future, which will enable Pakistan to become a part of the global value chain of electric vehicles
The Government of Pakistan implemented its first National Electric Vehicle Policy (NEVP) by launching Pakistan’s electric car company in collaboration with Chinese firm Topsun Motors on January the 3rd, 2020. The company cut the ribbon in its showroom called Topsun MR Motors on Jail Road Lahore.
On Friday, during the launch ceremony of the country’s first fully-electric three-wheeler vehicle, the adviser to the PM on Climate Change Malik Amin Aslam said that the project would promote Pakistan’s transport system and improve the environment.
The first National Electric Vehicle Policy was framed after incorporating consultations from all stakeholders.
In a nutshell, electric vehicles do not emit smoke and are cleaner, do not cause noise pollution and reduce fuel cost

The Ministry of Climate Change, in collaboration with the Board of Investment and Sazgar Engineering Works Limited, organized the event ‘Showcasing Pakistan’s First Fully-Electric Three-Wheel Vehicle’ to celebrate.
The PMs advisor said that the overarching EV policy, which was approved by PM Imran Khan last year, would achieve pollution-free transport facilities in the country with 70% fewer costs compared to fuel-based transport.
Localization Of EV Manufacturing:
The Government also plans to localize EV manufacturing in the future, which will enable Pakistan to become a part of the global value chain of electric vehicles.
The project will lead to less import of oil, which has placed a sufficient burden on the economy in the past. With the introduction of electric vehicles, living standards, the environment, and city conditions would change for the better.
