ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has inaugurated the first locally manufactured electric motorbike to promote an environmentally friendly environment in Pakistan.
This e-motorbike has been developed by a Pakistani company JOLTA ELECTRIC. This is an important step towards shifting the country’s automotive industry to electricity.
The e-bike is available in a variety of models, including scooters and sports bikes, which are low cost and do not require much repair.
The feature of this e-bike is that it will save energy and will be able to charge overnight while the special thing about it is that it has neither clutch nor gear.
These Jolta e-bikes will have a speed of 10 to 60 kilometers per hour. These bikes will be able to cover a distance of 60 to 100 kilometers once charged.
These e-bikes have motorized engines that do not emit pistons or fuel.
Inauguration of the e-motorbike is part of the current government’s five-year Pakistan Electric Vehicles Policy 2020-2025, which was approved last year.
The goal of this policy is to increase the share of electric market in passenger cars and heavy vehicles to 30% by 2030 and 90% by 2040.
