It is known that the most critical part of TOGG is the battery. According to the statement from Sakarya, battery production has been carried out for about 10 years. Here are the details…
The report, which was presented to Sakarya University as a result of the news of İhlas News Agency on battery technology, attracted the attention of the public, both internationally and nationally. Giving training within the body of Sakarya University Research and Development Application Center (SARGEM) for the developments about batteries, Dr. Instructor An interview was made with its member Mahmud Tokur.
The most notable part of this interview was that it was stated that the 10-year battery produced by Sakarya University Research and Development Application Center (SARGEM) continues its R&D studies and can be used in TOGG, a domestic vehicle. For these batteries produced at the same time, Dr. Instructor Member Mahmud Tokur said in a statement, “We have been producing the battery required for the electrode and bag battery technology announced for TOGG for 10 years within the body of Sakarya University.” sentence is also noteworthy.
“Turkey’s External Dependence on Battery Purchases Will Be Keeped at Minimum Level”
It has been noted that many different materials have been produced for battery production within the scope of R&D studies that have been actively working since 2012. At the beginning of these materials; While raw materials are in the first place in the province, it has been reported that there are recycling activities used in the production and evaluation of the manufacturing processes of the battery. In this context, primarily focusing on battery production; It was stated that the main objective is to take domestic production as a basis, and thus to reduce the purchase of batteries that are dependent on foreign sources.
Working in SAU Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department and SAU Research and Application Center on the subject of foreign dependency, Dr. Instructor The statement made by its member Mahmud Tokur drew attention. According to this statement, it was stated that they have sufficient level and skills for the battery of the TOGG brand vehicle, which is planned to be sold in our country, and therefore they are ready for the production phase.
“Offers from Europe and Far East Regions for Battery Produced in Sakarya”
It has been stated that the content of the batteries produced within the borders of our country has been developed at a level that can establish the infrastructure of TOGG. The content of R&D studies carried out in this context includes the mass production of prototype batteries. It was reported that the relationship between the accumulation for the production of batteries and the correct consumption of resources continued in parallel.
Stating that they have implemented the right strategy, Tokur also stated that they have received a joint proposal for battery production from world giant automobile manufacturers in both Europe and the Far East.
