Analysts say that these vehicles are very low cost and the commercial electric vehicle will cost around Rs 3 per kilometer. Those who buy electric vehicles get rid of petrol or diesel as well as mobile oil and filter replacement.
Expenses on petrol and diesel can be said to be cost-saving, but their main advantage is that their silencer does not emit any kind of smoke but it does not have a silencer at all.
Amir Hussain, CEO of Gogo Motors, a subsidiary of Tesla Motors, has revealed that his company has completed the installation of electric chargers, and now Pakistanis can travel on any electric car from Peshawar to Rahim Yar Khan.
Charging stations have been installed in Islamabad, Peshawar, Bhairah, Pindi Bhattian, Abdul Hakim and Multan and a charger will be installed in Faisalabad in the same month.
