President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan unveiled Turkey’s new all-electric indigenous automobile in a ceremony held at the IT Valley in Gebze on December 27, 2019.
Turkey’s Automobile Joint Venture Group (TOGG) was founded with a unique collaboration model meant to build upon synergies between the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) and five Turkish industry giants Anadolu Group, BMC, Kök Group, Turkcell, and Zorlu Group.
TOGG introduced a preview version of the C-segment SUV models, which will begin production in 2022. A C-segment sedan concept was also displayed along with the C-SUV model. By 2030, TOGG will produce five different models on a joint e-platform, with fully owned intellectual and industrial property rights.
Regarded by the Ministry of Industry and Technology as one of the projects of strategic importance in the 2023 Vision goals, Turkey's automobile will be one of the pioneers in the targeted technological transformation. As of 2022, when it will start production, TOGG will take its place in the industry as Europe's first non-classical born electric SUV manufacturer.
