Turkey's domestic car TOGG has come to an end. TOGG Senior Manager Mehmet Gürcan Karakaş answered the questions from the point reached during the production phase to the price issue to TRT Haber.
It went through many stages. Each piece has been tested dozens of times. There are only a few days left until the start of the trial production of the domestic car TOGG.
Pointing out that trial production will start soon, Mehmet Gürcan Karakaş said:
“Our trial production starts at the end of July and the beginning of August. This means: Since we will be producing with our lines for the first time, we learn how to produce our vehicles in quotation marks. We are ready for mass production at the end of October and the beginning of November. But this does not mean that we will make mass production and go to the market and traffic. Because by purchasing the vehicles we produce there, we will complete the tests that need to be done at the certification centers in Europe, and it takes 3 months, sometimes 5 months, to complete those tests.”
"ZamWhen the moment comes, we will position ourselves”
Karakaş said that the price will be determined by the market.Zamthe moment has come zamthe moment we will position ourselves in the market. Our rhetoric and claim is as follows; we know from whom we will get market share. We know in which segment we will position our vehicle in the market and we say that we will be competitive among them.”
Mehmet Gürcan Karakaş also gave information about the battery factory planned to be built next to the TOGG facility:
“From the moment we start mass production, we will be producing our own battery. The other is just about increasing the capacity and from there it will be an investment in managing the cell.”
In the last quarter of the year, the factory is expected to be ready for mass production. The Togg is slated to hit the road in March next year.
