Pakistan is moving towards cleaner transportation solutions. In 2019, the country approved its first National Electric Vehicle Policy which sets ambitious goals to limit oil import and reduce air polution in big cities, thus “strengthening Pakistan’s resolve to fight climate change at the national level”. Targets establish that electric vehicles (EV) sales would constitute 30% of cars and trucks new sales by 2030, and 90% by 2040. Domestic electric vehicles manufacturers have made significant investments in the sector to support the government’s policy. For instance, Sapphire Group is running the e-bus fleet in Karachi. “We are actively pursuing the launch of various e-mobility solutions in Pakistan as our core business strategy, which aligns with the government’s vision on climate action. To this end, our group takes great pride in
launching the first ever fleet of electric buses and commercial vehicles in Pakistan”, says Ahmed Jaudet Bilal, CEO, Sapphire Energy Pvt Limited.

 

Another company, Jolta Electric, launched the first locally manufactured electric motorcycle last July. The event was a major step towards electric mobility in count where more than 20 million of two and three-wheelers are on road. The large number of bikes and rickshaws already in use led the National Electric Vehicle Policy to set more ambitious goals for them, 50% of new sales by 2030 and 90% by
2040. “We aim to develop a sustainable electric vehicle ecosystem to bring safe, affordable and cleaner mobility solutions to our customers. We are the first EV
companyin Pakistan to employ the graphene based super capacity batteries for our product range”, explains-Usman Sheikh, CEO, Jolta Electric.

 

The policy foresees several measures to support the successful transformation of the vehicle industry, mainly with the development of charging infrastructure. It also provides incentives, such as reduced customs and sales tax, to lower the cost of electric vehicles. The National Electric Vehicle Policy is part of the larger government’s initiative to make a clean an green Pakistan.
