The term electro-mobility isn’t new but relatively new in Pakistan.Being a Pakistani you must have seen a handful japan-based electrical cars. Besides Toyota, which is a Chinese importer, BMW also introducing many electric cars which use a new technology called eDrive like BMW i8.

Due to energy crises and pollution, automobile engineers and manufacturers from all over the world headed together and putting their efforts to bring out best possibilities for electric cars and this ChargeNow station is going to be a step ahead same thought.

Wrapping thoughts

The idea is unique and the initiative is tremendous. Since Pakistan is witnessing such energy and pollution crises which need to be solved even partially up to some extent. This ChargeNow station adds a value as according to Yousuf Farooqui, there will be least emissions and amazing fuel savings using this electro-mobility concept. Hence this will bring a very positive change on foreign exchange services of Pakistan.
