Although the coronavirus epidemic, which spread from the city of Wuhan in China to all countries of the world and caused both life and financial losses, lost its effects after the discovery of vaccines and the increase in community immunity, it continues to affect the economy markets negatively.
In this context, the factories that could not produce due to the virus for a period of one year caused the economy of many countries to take a deep mark. One of the sectors that suffered from these negative developments was the automotive sector.
The chip crisis, which started last year and increased its severity at the beginning of this year, had a direct impact on the automotive industry. This situation, which caused restrictions on the production of vehicle models with internal combustion engines, and additional situations such as environmental pollution and cost increase, led manufacturers to produce electric cars.
These breakthroughs of the companies received a positive reaction from consumers who were fed up with the exorbitant fuel prices with the start of the Russia-Ukraine war. In this context, it has decided to be included in the electric car market in Turkey with the domestic and born electric Togg.
The countdown has begun for Togg, which has been working for a while and first attracted great attention in the USA, where it was introduced at the beginning of the year, and then in our country. The construction of the Gemlik facility, where mass production will be made, is about to be completed, and Togg plans to start mass production by the end of the year. In this context, Togg CEO Mehmet Gürcan Karakaş, who made important statements about the vehicle, also mentioned the sales price of the vehicle during his explanations.
CEO Karakaş Gave the Good News!
Answering the questions about the domestic car Togg, which has been eagerly awaited in the past days, Togg CEO Mehmet Gürcan Karakaş made important statements to TRT Haber. Karakaş marked the end of July and the beginning of August, heralded that trial production would begin. Giving the good news for the end of October and the beginning of November, Karakaş stated that mass production is planned for those dates.
Karakaş stated that the mass production, which will start at the beginning of November, does not mean that the vehicle will be put on the road immediately, and that the test will be sent to the European certification centers, and the response from there will take 3-5 months on average.
Couldn’t Disclose The Price!
The sales price of the domestic car Togg is very curious. CEO Karakaş, who could not make a clear statement on the subject, pointed out that the sales price of the vehicle will be determined by the market.
Battery Production Will Begin!
CEO Karakaş stated that on the dates when the mass production of the vehicle will start, production work will also begin for the battery.
