Over the last two years, the Pakistani government has been working hard to mainstream electric vehicles (EVs) in order to prevent environmental degradation. The adoption of all-electric commercial vehicles, which has yet to begin, has been one of its key priorities. Meanwhile, GuGu Motors, has launched an all-electric 11-seater minibus in Pakistan named the ‘Sokon Ruichi Tourer 250’ to support this project.
The new vehicle includes a single electric motor that produces 80 horsepower and 200 Nm of torque, which is suitable for a commercial minivan, and is powered by a 42-kWh battery pack.
In addition, because the Ruichi Tourer 250 is an all-electric vehicle, registration will be free in Islamabad.
A total of 11 people can be accommodated in the van. It boasts a 250-kilometer all-electric range, dual-zone air conditioning, regenerative braking, parking sensors, an android-based infotainment system, and a 7-kW onboard AC charger, among other features. It’s also available in a cargo design that provides a large loading space.
The electric vehicle is solely available for commercial use, according to a Tesla Industries (of which GuGu Motors is a division) social media post, and it is now “in stock.”
“Limited dealerships available,” reads the image’s text. Must have a strong market presence,” implying that the firm has encouraged “few dealerships” with a “strong market presence” to apply for distribution rights in Pakistan, and that the vehicle is yet to be seen commonly on the roads.
