The negative developments in the economic markets, the ongoing chip crisis and the zero carbon target statements from the country’s governments mediated new steps to be taken in the automotive sector within the framework of developing technology. The increase in the problems experienced in the production processes of vehicle models with internal combustion engines for a while, and accordingly the sale of both second-hand and zero kilometer vehicle models at exorbitant prices, took place on the agenda of consumers as well as sector representatives.
The increase in vehicle sales prices and the exorbitant levels of fuel prices with the effect of the Russia-Ukraine war encouraged consumers to closely follow the recent increase in electric car production. Electric cars, which were observed to be much more profitable than vehicle models with internal combustion engines, started to expand their market shares when a long-term calculation was made. The domestic and innate electric car Togg, which is preparing to be included in the relevant market, has also managed to stay on the agenda recently and increase its popularity by frequently appearing in both domestic and foreign press.
The solid steps taken by the domestic company, which was established in 2018, to enable Turkey to produce its own electric car, finally began to bear fruit. The domestic car Togg, which has been tested in many different terrain and climate conditions since the beginning of the year and announced with successful results, has started the countdown for the day it will go to traffic.
With the opening ceremony of the Gemlik Factory, which was held with the participation of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and other important names in the past days, Togg, which started mass production with 160 robots, began to be eagerly awaited by the consumers. Responding to the questions posed to him in a live broadcast program he attended, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan stated that the first Togg order was given from abroad.
Togg Order Statement from President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan!
President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who was a guest of the live broadcast program that was broadcast simultaneously on more than one channel in the past days, made important statements regarding the country’s agenda and the works carried out. Answering the questions posed to him, President Erdoğan also touched upon the Togg Gemlik Factory, which he opened recently.
President Erdoğan, who also gave information about Togg’s order in his statement, used the following statements: “We met with İlham Aliyev. ‘I want two cars. Second and third for me. I will use one in the office, and the other in the apartment.” He reminded me even today in our phone call. We haven’t talked about color yet. I think he will see her with Mihriban Hanım, then he will let us know.”
Red Car To Themselves!
Continuing their explanations, he stated that they will also buy Togg. Stating that the color choice was made by his wife Emine Erdoğan, President Erdoğan stated that the choice was in favor of the color red, which is why the vehicle they would buy would be a red Togg.
