Over the past years, a lot of new vehicles have made a debut in Pakistan and they have fared well, considering the market. A lot of people are buying crossover category vehicles in Pakistan and it has been quite a ride. Now, Sazgar Engineering, a Pakistani automaker, has introduced its first electric vehicle, the ORA 03, in collaboration with Great Wall Motor (GWM) of China.

The ORA 03 combines classic and modern aesthetics, featuring a unique exterior design. It comes with a lithium iron phosphate 47.78 kWh battery offering a range of 310-400 kilometers per charge. Yes, this means that you can reach Lahore from Karachi within a total of 4-5 charges of the vehicle. That sounds quite impressive, considering we do not have that efficient of a vehicle in the hatchback domain. It also boasts a stylish design, which almost looks like a Porsche vehicle.

Giving Competition

Currently, there are not a lot of electric vehicles in Pakistan due to a lack of infrastructure. Among those that are present, a lot of people can be seen driving the Audi E-tron, but it is quite pricey. The EV market in Pakistan anticipates the response to Sazgar’s latest electric vehicle offering. The ORA 03 is priced at PKR 89.99 Lac and bookings will begin next week with deliveries expected within 3/4 months.

To have a price of less than Rs.1 Crore for an electric hatchback sounds quite an interesting deal, especially with a plethora of features.
