This group mobilised the idea in 1890s and launched their cars in early days of 1900s.Whereas, we are may be the last in number after more than 100 years to work on this idea. Pakistan’s first electric car was launched this year.It’s a food for thought that where we lie in the list of technological world.The reason is not people here, don’t possess the capabilities.
