Recently, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that according to their vision, 60% of the energy used in Pakistan will be green and around 30% of the vehicles used will be electrified by 2030. Keeping in line with the vision, the government recently approved a policy to promote the use of electric vehicles in the country.

Askari filling station in Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Mardan filling station in Gadap Town, and Shell filling station in Defence’s Khayaban-e-Bahria will be the first three locations to be installed with 50KWH rapid chargers.

Shell and K-Electric will look to expand the EV charging network further by installing more sites in the next couple of years. The two companies have also expressed a desire to expand their business relationship further by looking into other mutually beneficial business opportunities.

    in the future, when there is no electric in the EV station

    KE: we don’t have sufficient Gas and Petrol to convert into electricity. :D

    • That’s my biggest concern too. EVs are great and all when renewable energy sources are being used to charge them. But we use gas and petrol to generate energy and if you combine that with line loss and other factors then the environmental impact of EVs will be the same as normal vehicles.
