    Post Good News *Electric Rickshaws Will Hit The Roads of Pakistan Soon

    Dear Pak Wheels Friends.
    Good news for Pakistan.


    It seems like a great time for electric vehicles in Pakistan. We are seeing more and more hybrid cards on the street, initiatives aiming to replace motorcycles with E-bikes are gaining steam and now, we will also be seeing the Electric Rickshaw on roads in Pakistan. The new vehicle is called the Z5 E-Tricycle and it is going to be launched by Zar Motors.

    The E-Rickshaw looks sleek and visually, it is a step up to the traditional ones we see on the roads currently. It converts sunlight into energy and is expected to have significantly lower running costs.

    Charging and Mileage:

    The biggest issue for electric vehicles is charging and it seems like the Z5 takes care of that nicely. It can be charged through any normal outlet (100V-240V) just like your cellphone. You can charge the battery up to 80% capacity in 2 hours while a full charge would take around 7 hours. The 80% charge will last for about 50 kilometers.
    While there is no information about pricing just yet, it?s safe to assume it will cost more than a traditional rickshaw. According to the company?s own estimates, the cost of buying an E-Rickshaw will be paid off in 14 months. The Rickshaw will have capacity for 1 driver and 3 passengers although it can be extended upon request.

    For major cities like Lahore, the E-Rickshaw could be an amazing replacement. We know that we?d prefer it over regular rickshaws for the noise and air pollution reductions alone.
    Khwaja Ahmad Hassan, adviser to CM Punjab, was recently seen testing the Z5 E?Tricycle recently at the CM Office in Lahore. That makes sense since the use of these new vehicles is already covered under the Rozgar scheme by the government. We just hope that the benefits of the E-Rickshaw outweigh the initial costs so that Pakistan can move towards a greener future.
    Price and Availability:

    The price and availability of the E-Rickshaw are unknown at the moment.
    Detailed specs for the Z5 R-Tricycle are provided below:

    on one hand - the entire population of pakistan wants to buy JDM pokemon edition box cars because they have 2 dozen air bags in them and "pawaa shteering" etc. and they are built so much safer than Pakistani tin cans

    on the other hand we have these monstrosities with absolutely no safety requirements,, .... lol

    Good luck spending 5.6 hours to change it to 80%, just to drive it 40kms (and thats ideal figure. Expect it to be even lower in ideal scenario). Even if you account for the time alone, you start to see the real picture.

    so lets take this scenario - it has a range of 40 kms, divide by half thats 20 - because it needs to get back to the owners house in order to charge, thats not very far considering the cities in Pakistan.

    Thats not it. Soon it'll be awarded by our dear "Shahbaz Shareef" under yet-another scehem ... because Electric Rickshaws are more important than Roti.

    true - cell phone, ricksha and fizooliyat are more important than hunger and education.
