There is good news for Pakistan as the first Pakistani formula electric car will participate in Formula Student UK 2018.
The Pakistani formula electric car is developed by students of National University of Science and Technology (NUST). However, it is the first formula styled electric vehicle from Pakistan that will participate in Formula Student UK 2018. The first car was designed and developed in 2016 and later unveiled by the President Mamnoon Hussain.
However, the NUST students’ team recently developed the second electric vehicle that was earlier unveiled by Lieutenant General Naweed Zaman. The Pakistani formula electric car is ready to compete in the Formula Student UK 2018. However, the event will take place from 11-15 July 2018.
Earlier, the NUST students’ team also took part in FSAE Electric 2016 in the United States. The team got 18th position among 29 competing teams. In addition, Pakistan Innovation Foundation also awarded them with People’s Choice Innovation of The Year 2016. Earlier, Formula Electric Racing NUST (FERN) is the single Pakistani team that develops electric cars in Pakistan.
The team is hopeful that the introduction of such vehicles not just increases the use of electric cars in Pakistan but will also highlight the positive image of Pakistan on the global level.
