Pakistan is the new name in the list of nations pledged to go “all-electric”! With a population set to exceed the 212 million mark, Pakistan has become the fifth most populous country in the world. The Government of Pakistan aims to turn at least 30% of the vehicles owners in Pakistan to switch to electric vehicles by the end of 2030.
The Govt. of Pakistan waved a green signal to its ambitious EV policy after a long delay. The policy once implemented will push in nearly a million electric bikes, and rickshaws along with 100 thousand electric cars, trucks and buses, into their existing transportation system, all aimed to be covered in a span of five years.
The new policy will offer incentives to automobile manufactures for the production of electric vehicles.
The policy was actually approved in the month of November itself, by the Prime Minister Imran Khan, but it was on June 10 when it set for implementation. Prime Minister Imran Khan told the media that the Pakistan Govt’s new policy will help achieve the nation’s goal to reduce its carbon print, thus help fight the Climate change.
Although lack of charging infrastructure remains the biggest obstacle for the adoption of EVs, the implementation of the policy will help authorities and companies to set EV charging stations at major points such as in motorways and cities.
