The first locally produced electric car — Nur-E 75 — was unveiled in a ceremony in Karachi on 14 August. The five-seater hatchback has a top speed of 127 km/h and will be introduced in the market at the end of 2024.
Dice Foundation Founder and Chairman Dr Khurshid Qureshi termed the car a “gamechanger both for Pakistan’s economy as well as for the well-being of the common man”. He added that it would play a “phenomenal” role in combatting climate change and helping conserve the environment by moving Pakistan away from non-renewable fuel consumption.

The five-seater hatchback has a top speed of 127 kilometers per hour and will be introduced in the market at the end of 2024. The car takes eight hours to get fully charged, after which it can run for 210 kilometers.
Dr Qureshi said that Nur-E 75 is the first car that will be manufactured in the country by a private entity. “We have achieved this milestone only because of the support from different parties and institutions,” he added.

According to him, 60% of the car’s parts would be locally manufactured when it would be introduced in late 2024 but this percentage would rise to 80% in later years.
The car will have all-electric propulsion with a range of 200 km on a single charge and an energy efficiency ratio (KM/liter) of 3.2.
