One question for all electric vehicles is that of durability. Electric motors have a limited life span and so does the E-Bike. It can be charged around 500 times before needing a change which amounts to roughly 50,000 km. A replacement battery costs 12,000 PKR. Even factoring in the costs of a battery replacement, the E-Bike is cheaper in the long run since you would save over 80,000 PKR in fuel costs.

Athar Ahmed Khan, who is the owner of TAZ trading which imports the E-Bikes, says his aim is to replace the 70cc motorcycles in the market. If the product is met with a successful reception, Khan would consider building assembly and manufacturing plants in Pakistan that could create a lot of jobs and help revive our stagnating automotive industry.

We personally think that the E-Bike is a great idea. India and China have seen the launch of cheap smart-cars and similar electric bikes in response to the need for low cost transport for a common man. The E-Bike targets the same demographic. It provides clear cut advantages and savings that anyone can appreciate and there is no reason why it can’t take off in Pakistan.
