Design

This is the electric car at its best. images from PakWheels.

The design is influenced by Honda E and N-One, with the front design looking like the two hatchbacks. It has the car a retro but modern style with round headlights as well as an angular front. In contrast to the front the rear appears basic and boring, and the car appeared as if it was not assembled correctly because certain parts appeared to be oddly aligned.

Moving to the interior the dashboard is the clean appearance, but appears aged as if it was taken from a 2007-era vehicle. Air vents in white do not appear to be adjustable, and the black plastics on the sides of the doors as well as the dashboard appear low-quality. But, it’s an early prototype and it’s possible that DICE improves the interior and improves the rear Nur-E 75 appears to be an exciting electric car for Pakistan.

Power and Range

In terms of the powertrain, the hatchback is expected to be powered by a 107HP/200Nm electric motor with an top speed of 127 km/hr. It will have the 35 KWhr battery, that the company claims will provide up to 200 km of range when the AC is running. Remember that the range could depend on the speed you drive at and whether you’re using the AC or not.
