  • Oh bhai mazaq aisa kro jo samjh aye. Yeh to bohot lambi chor dee aapnah. Hahahaha.. news source is sabir shakir hahahaha

  • I was standing Read this headline and twirrelled sit back on a bench behind.

  • Agar india mei official ho gayi hai tesla tou pakistan mei bhi ho sakti hai. Pakistani EV policy bhi ab kafi investors attract kar rahi hai. Secondly, Javed Afridi ne bhi tweet kiya hai “Tesla in Pakistan” tou kya pata k waqai tesla aa jaye.

    • Masla ye he ke tesla ke pas hath me itna cash nhi jis tarah apple wgera ke pas he, wo company abi tk loss me chali jayi he, yani ke on ka profit stable nhi, or india me market bht bari he is liye waha pr onki sales zyada ho gi, is liye wo waha gae he.

      • bhai tera demag tou set hai? Tesla konse loss mei jaa rahi hai? Tesla ka owner Elon Musk dunya ka sab se ameer banda hai aur tum keh rahey ho k uss k pas cash nahi hai. Pakistan mei bhi kafi bari market hai

  • Tesla makes luxury EVs. They do not cater to developing markets. 50K USD for their basic car is way too much. I do not think we should promote Tesla. However we should only allow Hybrid and electric cars in Pakistan. We should ban all cars with internal combustion engine if they are not hybrid.

    • Tesla is planning to release 25K USD car within the next couple of years. 25K is the duty Pakistanis pay on imported vehicles. There’s a market there and Pakistan also has serious energy issues that Tesla can help with and profit from.

  • I think Pakistan have to wait a decade for Telsa..
    Pakistan automobile industry struggling for basic Hybrid.
    Hope Generation X avail Telsa…

  • Could be possible the launch of the Tesla in Pakistan, but it will be dream for common man, it’s advantage for the people who are affording BMW, Lexus, Landcruiser and other luxurious cars in Pakistan.
    Common man will look for Chinese EVs.

  • PHIR WAHI HOGA, TESLA KI BATTERY CHORI HOGI, EK BAR ANE, DO CHOR LOG JUGAR NIKAL LENGE,
    JAB TYRE, BATTERY AJ NAHI CHORTE TAB TO KW KI BATTRY KUN CHOREGA

  • How many in Pakistan have the potential to afford a tesla. We don’t need tesla but we need reduction in auto sector taxes. Bring in ferrari and bugatti next, who cares.

  • Do you have a reliable source of info, not amateur youtuber, pakistan got a black out in the beginning of the month, pakistan don’t have electric charging station and overall tesla is expensive.
    It’s insane to bring tesla in Pakistan
