From the looks of it, the electric cars are the future that every automaker is working towards. Companies like Tesla have seen some massive success in this regard.

Where we see Western automakers spending on new electric technologies, not many would know that Chinese are spending equally if not more in these new sorts of automobiles. And the reason for this the horrendous pollution problem China is facing. The Chinese government not only provides massive subsidies but also help in research and development if you are interested in making/producing electric cars.

It was only a matter of time when someone would bring one in Pakistan too. We already have conventional Chinese cars in Pakistan; from FAW cars to Foton to Zotye and a few more. And now someone has brought Chinese electric cars in Pakistan as well.
