1st Turkish Electric Car On The Way
Without the need for highly advanced and patented fossil fuel engines, more and more players are looking to get into the automaker’s game. We have reported on the seemingly sudden but serious entrance of Vietnam’s VinFast. Now we also have news about a new participant from Turkey.
A Bosch employee of nearly two decades, Gürcan Karakas, is leading the effort. Bosch has been a major automotive supplier for years.
The new electric car manufacturer is called Togg, and the first test vehicles have been produced in Istanbul, Turkey.
“By the beginning of November, we will have perfected the processes and then freeze them in this form,” says CEO Karakas. “Then we will have our production plant ready for series production.”
The launch of the electric vehicle, an SUV, is supposed to be on the market at the end of January 1. quarter 2023, “after the completion of the technical qualification and certification tests with a view to European standards.” Of course it is aimed at the European market. Who wouldn’t be?
“We held our board meeting this month at our Gemlik facility where we started trial production,” reads the translation of the tweet below. “After our meeting, our trade minister Mr. We held a consultation meeting and test drive with Mehmet Muş.”
