DFSK to Launch Electric Car in Pakistan Priced Over Rs. 1 Crore

Regal Automobile (DFSK) is planning to debut its first battery electric vehicle (BEV), Seres 3, in Pakistan on mid-October 23.

According to an official notification, Seres 3 will initially be sold as a Completely Built-Up (CBU) at Rs. 11.8 million. The booking amount will be Rs. 5,000,000 with a 90-day delivery estimate. With a 49.34 kWh battery, this EV will be able to travel over 40o km on a single charge.

Eventually, the automaker will launch Seres 3 as a locally assembled vehicle in Pakistan at Rs. 9.6 million, and you’ll be able to book it for Rs. 3 million. The delivery of the locally assembled model is tentatively scheduled for March 2024. Powering the locally assembled Seres 3 will be the same powertrain as the CBU.

DFSK Seres 3 will compete with the MG ZS EV and it does not have any other direct competitors. Being fully electric, Seres 3 will have decent power. The electric motor makes 160 hp and 300 Nm of torque.

The Seres 3 has advanced features such as various driver-assistance features, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, etc.

Although, with a price over Rs. 1 crore, Seres 3 will appeal to a small niche of car buyers.

  • High price will not make any positive impact on fuel import unless a common person can afford. Govt should consider shifting public transport to electric that are the daily runner and consumer of fuel. With little logic and mind govt can subsidise or can provide interest free loans to companies agree to convert buses to electric.
