Turkey’s domestic car TOGG took its place at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which started today in Las Vegas, a state of Nevada, USA. Having unveiled the C SUV model before, TOGG introduced its second car, the C Sedan, at the fair. The fair was also TOGG’s first international presentation. In his presentation, TOGG CEO Gürcan Karakaş said, “Thank you for joining us today at the fair in Las Vegas and on live broadcasts on social media.”
Karakaş said, “While discussing the new mobility in our plan, I will talk about what sets us apart from other actors. Let me express why we have come such a long way to CSE. It underlines our priority. We deliberately made this choice. We wanted to make the first announcement of our consumer brand here. “As the rules of the game are changing, I want to start with this, it’s a story most of us know,” he said.
“WE DESIGNED LIVING SPACE”
“Actually, this window of opportunity is valid and true for everyone on the one hand, and on the other hand, not everyone can participate in this new opportunity and get a share from it. Now let’s look at these megatrends,” said Karakaş, “We see that these trends have changed our future in 3 dimensions. In other words, the automotive sector will not look the same in the next 7-8 years. The first part is the technology part, as we have said, the connected and electrical part and the autonomous part. On the other hand, in social behavior, we actually get used to the smart devices around us. This smart device, which used to be a vehicle, a car, will be one of our main elements in our living spaces.
“We see the car evolve into a smart device, and a new living space is emerging here. Therefore, we have actually designed this living space from the very first day,” Karakaş said, “If you design a smart vehicle, it must be different. You have to design it as a consumer electronics from the very beginning. In other words, the technology part is connected, autonomous, shared and electric, but we developed the use case in our comparison studies.
“0-100 KILOMETER SPEED IN 4.8 SECONDS”
Karakaş said, “If we look at what we offer in the field of smart devices, there is a very large wheelbase. We offer 200 to 3400 horsepower. We offer an output range of 500 km WLTP from 0 to 100 in 4.8 seconds.”
Karakaş said, “These are the targets that we have set from the first day through benchmarking. And of course, they need to be integrated into the mobility ecosystem,” he said. Karakaş shared the information that “Mass production will be ready in the 4th quarter of 2022 and after the certification studies are completed, mass production will start in the 1st quarter of 2023”.
