ISLAMABAD,Sept.20(Gwadar Pro) - A Pakistani artist cum engineer has built an electric mini-truck that can travel around 40 kilometers on a single charge.
The mini-truck is powered by a Chinese electric engine which is run by lead-acid batteries. “It took me more than a year to complete the truck,” Mudassar Jutt told Gwadar Pro. It takes nine hours to charge the batteries. The truck can carry about nine people inside and on the roof.

Mr. Jutt decorated the mini-truck like traditional trucks traveling the highways in the country. Pakistani bus and truck art is famous worldwide. The truck is decorated inside and out with typical truck art.
Since childhood, he was fond of making toy trucks. Based on his hobby, he has built an electric mini-truck which can run on the road.

"Through this truck, I want to promote the art of Pakistani trucks and make a call to switch from conventional engines to electric vehicles to reduce air pollution and curb climate change," Mudassar Jutt added.
He said that the government of Pakistan should take China’s help to promote EVs in Pakistan. “By adopting EVs, not only will we be able to save foreign exchange reserves spent on oil import, but also we will save the future of the next generation in the wake of climate change,” Jutt said.
