Federal Ministry for Science Technology Fawad Chaudhry said vehicles in Pakistan will be soon shifted on electric power as the country approved its first policy for Electric Vehicle (EV).

Chaudhry said that soon our country will be included in the countries, which use electric vehicles. The two-wheeler and three-wheeler vehicles will be shifted on electric power, while the EV Manufacturing Units would also be established in Pakistan.

The minister said the duty on the establishment of EV’s Manufacturing Units would be only one percent in Pakistan.

“Ministry of Science and Technology is working to policy to shift vehicles on battery in future,”said Fawad Chaudhry.

The policy was passed earlier this week by the ECC, which was jointly proposed by the Ministry of Industries and Production, Ministry of Science and Technology, and Ministry of Climate Change.

The policy deals with motorcycles and three-wheeled vehicles, which will help at lowering tariffs and taxes.

A policy for four-wheeler would be approved in the next meeting.
