According to the Usman Sheikh, CEO of Auj Technologies, a Lahore-based electric motorcycle company, that they are working on an electric bike which will be budget-friendly. The bike is named after the animal “Jaguar”. Usman Sheikh added that “they are first assemblers of electric bikes in Pakistan, who have designed them locally”.

Manufacturers have not compromised on engine and body parts of the bikes, as they are equipped with very much similar to already available Japanese technology in the market.
