Pakistan Auto Show (PAS) 2022 featured several interesting electric vehicle (EV) based prospects, one of whom was Mode Mobility. The said company is a startup based in Karachi which was among the 150+ exhibitors at the PAS 2022 at the Lahore Expo Centre.
The event marked the first time Mode Mobility showed its C-Series 2-Wheeler to the public. The company had previously revealed the design on Instagram in January 2022.
C-Series scooters are completely designed and built in Pakistan by Mode Mobility unlike many other electric scooters on the market which are Chinese CBUs or CKDs. Although the team from Mode Mobility insisted that the units on display were early-stage prototypes, the display units gave a sense of high quality and reliability.
The bike has a single electric motor powering the rear wheel. It has a cruising speed of up to 75 kilometers and a driving range of 75 kilometers per charge. C-Series scooter offers an option between a 1-kilowatt and 2-kilowatt electric motor, which is paired to a 2-kilowatt hour battery pack.
Mode Mobility’s CEO Shah Talha Sohail shared that along with the C-Series, the company is also working on multiple products aimed at various market segments. The C-Series is mainly targeted at the 125cc segment and is designed to offer an alternative mobility option to women.
Syed Najiullah Hussaini, Co-Founder & CPO, also shared that production is expected to start by early next year, the company is currently in the process of testing and optimization of the product and production processes, setting up the assembly facility, and obtaining regulatory approvals.
The purpose of exhibiting the scooters at PAPS 2022 was to gauge the market’s response to the C-Series design and specs. Salman Aftab, Mode Mobility’s Head of Automotive Design shared “the public’s response to our design has been tremendous, it’s almost universally positive and in fact better than we had expected”.
