Turkey has just unveiled its first fully domestically produced car. President Erdogan has presented TOGG prototype, an electric vehicle, with a range of 300 miles. He hopes to challenge Tesla.
TOGG plans to produce up to 175,000 annually, with production to begin by 2022 with compact SUVs. Initially, five models of the car will be produced. The Turkish government will buy 30,000 of the vehicles by 2035. Erdogan said the charging infrastructure for electric cars would be ready across the county by 2022.
Is Turkey’s TOGG going to be a success and can really challenge Tesla?
