Pakistan installs first electric vehicle charger unit
ISLAMABAD – Pakistan’s first electric vehicle charging unit has been installed in federal capital’s Jinnah Avenue.
“The EV charging facility has been set up by Attock Oil,” Samaa TV quoted Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhary as saying.
“The opening of EV charging stations was another target of Ministry of Science and Technology to encourage E vehicles as future transportation,” he said in a tweet last week, announcing the launch of the stations.

The development came after the policy to shift the country’s vehicles to electric power was approved last month. “EV manufacturing units will also be established in the country,” Fawad added.
The South Asian country is gearing up to make electric vehicles the new normal.
