Malik Amin Aslam, Adviser to Prime Minister on Climate Change, stated this while talking to the media on Monday.

He added, “Pakistan has the opportunity to become a lead exporter in the region of right-hand driven electric vehicles.”

He further added that special economic zones will be created as laid out by the EV policy. “We are already in contact with Kamra Aviation Complex as it has semi-skilled labor that could help train the workforce for manufacturing electric automobiles.”

Amin said the home-grown production of EVs had already started and on 26th January he was going to inaugurate the first electric rickshaw manufacturing factory in Lahore. He added, “The momentum of auto industry for shifting towards EVs would be unresisting.”

  • There is no market for EVs in Pakistan. They will soon come to their senses when sales are disappointing. If they really cared about the environment they’d do something about the sad state of public transport.
