Nice Pakistan is becoming a dumping ground for copycat Chinese cars. Why aren't we making our own and exporting them?

Electric Rickshaw Of Pakistan: A Review
By Sulman Ali

PakWheels has brought an exciting and unique review of Electric Rickshaw made in Pakistan for its readers. The current government and Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, are very interested in introducing electric vehicles. The premier wants to bring electric vehicles for public transport by 2030.

Saazgar Engineering makes this rickshaw, and it is the first one of its kind in Pakistan.

Power Train and Charging:

The Saazgar Engineering owner told us that this rickshaw comes with a 3-Kilowatt (KW) motor and a 6.5KW Lithium-Ion battery. This battery gets fully charged in 5 hours and can run up to 120-160 kilometers with a single charge, depending on your driving style.

Charging Cost:

You can charge this vehicle in 5-6 electric units, costing you a Rs1/kilometre. On the other hand, a petrol rickshaw will cost you around Rs5-6/kilometre, if its average is 25-kilometre per liter. This makes this vehicle an excellent choice for a person who wants to earn money from it.

Maintenance:

The repair and maintenance cost of this electric rickshaw is very minimal compared to a petrol rickshaw. You just have to repair its moving parts like the brake pad in this vehicle because you don’t have to change the engine oil, air filter, or oil filter in it.

Pick of Electric Rickshaw:

Interestingly, these rickshaws have an excellent pick as compared to petrol ones. This will help the driver in avoiding rush areas and drive a smooth ride.

Price of Electric Rickshaw:

According to Saazgar owner, the tentative price of this rickshaw can reach around Rs4.5-5 lacs.

The reason behind its comparatively high price is its Lithium-Ion Battery and electric parts, which the company has to import. However, this battery has a warranty up to 5-7 years, which is a great money saver.

Furthermore, due to its low maintenance cost, the owner can get his money back within 5-6 months.
Battery and Motor Placement:

The battery is placed under the driver’s seat, while the motor is under the passengers’ seat.

How to Charge Electric Rickshaw:

The company has installed the charger within the vehicle. You can charge it on any standard socket at any place. This gives a huge positive to this vehicle.

Final Verdict:

This rickshaw is a great innovation, and it can take time to get accepted in Pakistan. However, people should adopt it because it will reduce pollution and be a great money saver for the owners.

The electric rikshaw or mini car is the answer. Rikshaw seems cheaper and poor ride, but cost effective
Yeah, rickshaws and bikes are very cost effective. I often use Careem and Uber for ordering rickshaws and bikes, I also use Bykea(Pakistani startup) which only offers bike rides and delivers groceries, medicines and food.

#Pakistan’s first indigenous #electric #vehicle, battery to be rolled out in 2023 — project planner
Designed and financed by expatriate Pakistanis, the prototypes of the two products are expected to be ready within four months
Pakistani nationals with experience of global automobile industry are voluntarily working on the project to make it a success
Pakistan plans to indigenously manufacture its first electric vehicle (EV) and battery in 2023, said the top planner and manager of the project on Friday, adding that the economic benefit of the endeavor would exceed $1 billion.
Funded and designed by expatriate Pakistani experts, the country’s EV and battery manufacturing project is spearheaded by DICE Foundation, a US-based non-profit and tax-exempt entity that is registered in Michigan.
“Pakistan is close to launching its own world class electric vehicle,” Dr. Khurshid Qureshi, the foundation’s chairman, told Arab News. “The commercial rollout of the vehicle will take place in the third quarter of 2023.”
He informed that the first prototype of the “made in Pakistan vehicle” would be ready within the next three to four months, adding that the initiative had been “funded and designed by Pakistanis who have either worked with or are still employed by top global auto companies in the United States, United Kingdom and Canada.”
