The first “indigenous” electric car manufacturer in Pakistan intends to release a completely electric compact SUV. With its bold intention to launch a fully-electric compact SUV on the Pakistani market in 2025, Jaxeri Automotive (Pvt.) Ltd., Pakistan’s first electric vehicle manufacturer, is poised to leave a lasting impression on the industry.
On the occasion of Pakistan’s Independence Day, DICE Foundation introduced the Nur-E 75, the country’s first electric vehicle, at the Beach Luxury Hotel in Karachi.
Development Of New SUV
According to a recent article in Automark Magazine, Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) Chairman Muhammad Najeeb Haroon visited a nearby Research and Development (R&D) facility of a carmaker.
Additionally during the meeting, the firm updated the PEC chairwoman on their developments in the auto manufacturing industry. They also discussed the creation of a tiny SUV that is all electric. It’s noteworthy that the business intends to develop and manufacture this SUV in Pakistan. This electric SUV is scheduled to debut in Pakistan in 2025.
The DICE Foundation, a US-based NGO run by people of Pakistani descent, collaborated to create this amazing prototype. The Nur-E 75 represented a commitment to widely available electric mobility and sought to enter the budget vehicle sector.
On August 14, 2022, the business also unveiled the Nur-E 75 electric hatchback prototype in Pakistan. This electric automobile was designed with the goal of standing out in the area of the market for entry-level cars.
The Chairman of the DICE Foundation predicts that commercial production of the Nur-E 75 will start in the fourth quarter of 2024, with about 60% of its components coming from domestic suppliers. Given Pakistan’s economic situation at the moment, automobile costs may go up.
Features , Performance And Capabilities
Nur-E has a single electric motor that produces 200Nm of torque and 107 horsepower, allowing it to travel at a top speed of 127 Km/hr. A 35 KWh battery, which the company claims may provide a noteworthy range of 200 km, provides the vehicle’s electricity. Whenever using the rapid charging option, the required time is only 2 hours as opposed to the required 7-8 hours for regular charging.
However, considering Pakistan’s economic situation at that time, automobile prices would surge much more.
