“With the implementation of TOGG, interest in electric vehicles will increase”
Selcuk Tufan, the manager of the company operating in the field of power electronics, stated that electric vehicles have been on the agenda recently in Turkey and said, “There is a demand for electric vehicles at the moment. There are between 2,000 and 3,000 electric vehicles. This number will increase very rapidly in 2022, especially after the implementation of our domestic and national vehicle TOGG. In the next 5 to 10 years, the market volume of electric vehicles will expand considerably. The demands of gasoline and diesel fueled vehicles will decrease in the near future. We can say that the number of sockets in Turkey is about 3,000,” he said.
“The interest in electric vehicles is very high”
Fatih Çlak, the founding partner of the company operating in the field of electric charging systems, said, “Tesla Model 3 came to Turkey about 3 months ago. There are 8-10 units of this vehicle on the market at the moment. It is a completely electric vehicle. It is actually the most cost-effective vehicle of the brand. Average” The price is 1.3 million liras. There are currently 1,500 public charging stations in Turkey. A very small amount of them are DC. We can charge vehicles in two ways as AC and DC. We usually install AC chargers at our customers’ homes and workplaces. Other DC high-speed charging stations are located in public places.You can charge this vehicle in 5-6 hours at home, while you can charge it in 30-40 minutes at outdoor stations.
The charging time at Tesla’s AC charging stations is 6-7 hours.In DC charging stations, it charges in an hour. Interest in electric vehicles is very high. The cost of electric vehicles is very affordable compared to a normal vehicle. When we compare it with a fuel of 600-700 liras, this cost is around 40 liras for electric vehicles. As you know, TOGG, our domestic and national car, is coming soon. In the last quarter of next year, they will drive these vehicles to the field.
