A Pakistani-run foundation has developed Pakistan’s first electric car and its battery. The prototype of the car will be unveiled in the coming months. According to Khursheed Qureshi, founder, and chairman of Dice Foundation, Pakistan has successfully developed its first indigenous electric vehicle by utilizing the expertise of Pakistani diasporans. Moreover, Overseas Pakistanis who work in the automobile industry built the electric vehicle
The electric vehicle was built according to international standards, rather than reverse engineering. He hopes the car will also compete with other electric vehicles. Dr. Khurshid said $100,000 had been spent on the vehicle’s manufacture. Moreover, the project was made possible by donations from the Dice Foundation.
