Pakistan Electric Bikes

After really long time, Pakistan finally has a local manufacturer for Electronic Bikes. Utilizing only local resources, this company has successfully manufactured a fully operational e-bike.

Jolta International is a firm which is based out of Bahria Town Rawalpindi. Recently, it showcased three e-bikes in Gawadar.

Jolta is all set to launch the commercial variants of the electronic bikes in Pakistan namely the E70, E100, and E125. However, a lot of details are yet to be finalized. According to resources, the base model of the lot i.e. E70 will be retailed in the country at an estimated cost of Rs.35,000.

The shape of these bikes is exactly the same as that of a conventional motorcycle. Despite the shape, there is nothing else in common as these bikes are smoke-free, fuel-free, environmentally friendly, pollution-free, and noiseless.

Being highly affordable, these bikes have been designed and tailored according to the needs of a common Pakistani man.

The details of these bikes are as follows:

E70

  • Charge time: 5 Hours
  • Electricity cost for one charge:15 (1.7 units)
  • Travel in one charge: 50KM
  • Top speed: 50 km/hour
  • Price:35,000 to Rs.40,000

E100

  • Charge time: 6 Hours
  • Electricity cost for one charge:20 (2.5 units)
  • Travel in one charge: 70KM
  • Top speed: 60 km/hour
  • Price: Undecided yet

E125

  • Charge time: 7-8 Hours
  • Electricity cost for one charge:32 (4 units)
  • Travel in one charge: 120KM
  • Top speed: 80 km/hour
  • Price: Undecided yet

The engines of these bikes are motorized which means that they are free from all kinds of piston and fuel emissions.

According to the spokesperson of Jolta International, these bikes are completely ready to start selling commercially in Pakistan. Without mentioning any specific date, the company has said that the Pakistani customers can expect these bikes to be available in the stores within a few months. The company also plans to enhance and refine all the features with time and move towards the betterment of this cost-effective and eco-friendly product.

A deal has already been signed between Jolta International and Gwadar Free Zone Company to make the entire region pollution free.

The company further added that it has plans to invest another $10 million in Pakistan in two different phases. The plan is to set up the assembly unit as well as the manufacturing unit in Pakistan.

Down the line, the company has plans to produce e-cars and shuttle services to bring more convenient and emission-free commuting options for the people of Pakistan.
