The SAPM on Climate Change of Pakistan, Malik Amin Aslam, officially launched Pakistan’s first Electric Taxi. The initiative will help cement PM Imran Khan’s vision for a Clean Green Pakistan. Amin Aslam says these e-taxis will save drivers Rs. 12,000 in budget costs. However, the government stands to save more than 2 billion from oil imports.
Supposedly, a fully charged battery in the e-taxi allows it to travel up to 250 kilometers. The service is a joint venture between Sapphire Group and Faisal Movers. It aims to reduce Pakistan’s carbon footprint and help preserve the natural environment of northern areas, particularly Gilgit-Baltistan.
