People those have interest in new upcoming vehicles must be aware of how Tesla is making improvement in vehicle production, these are not regular gasoline or diesel powered vehicles but electric vehicles. In the year of 2017 there is good news for Pakistani community regarding Tesla new vehicle that arrived in Pakistan, a fully electric vehicle Tesla S 75-D. No confirm price of vehicle yet been found but as electric vehicles are new to market so there are maximum chances it will be expensive. Price will not be issue for those who want to rid off fuel consumption.

It is a big bold step by Tesla but with current conditions in Pakistan & according to my point of view this is not going to be successful, as it will take much more time for electric vehicles to switch places with Gasoline or Diesel vehicles that require much more powerful infrastructure for charging points and especially for electricity.
