Erdogan wants its own auto industry

Togg, what sounds like the latest high-tech accessory from Apple or Samsung, stands for a new age. Cars, commercial vehicles, buses and trucks have been manufactured in Turkey for decades – but only from foreign manufacturers. This was not only worried about the well -known auto -savvy population, but also the Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who has been doing everything for years to crown the domestic auto industry with its own brand.

Planned a million cars by 2030

By 2030, Togg plans to produce a total of one million vehicles in five different segments; But the start is already becoming more difficult than ever, because Turkey has nothing to do with electric cars so far and the German premium manufacturers in particular have an excellent reputation on the Bosphorus, which makes it difficult to play new players in the AutoTelt. Togg wants to soften this with solid technology and a large local patriotism.

What could still work in Turkey itself should be a true Herculean task in Europe, especially against the established competition and the import stamps from Korea, China and Japan. Togg wants to do without classic car dealers like almost all new car brands. Sales are carried out over the Internet, while brand stores should ensure image and awareness. In the long run, Togg wants to earn his money in a complete ecosystem and has already brought a variety of cooperation partners on board. With a view to the 2030s, the car becomes more of a means to the purpose – if the project works.

  1. Have fun
    If you are desperately looking for a charging station for your toog in Anatolia, quite apart from that … ,Do the Turks have no money for something like that when the currency goes down the stream . There is no car that the Turkish industry can and will produce on its own, and so an e car remains wishful thinking .

  2. Automotive industry in Turkey
    Over 80% of the coach driving in Europe such as MAN, Neoplan, Temsa, BMC and Evobus Mercedes come to Turkey. With these buses, millions of passengers are promoted in Europe. A bus consists of several 100.000 parts, an electric car only 10.000 parts, D.H. Building a bus is much heavier than an electric car. The problem could possibly. Do not fold right away with the number of pieces so that the quality does not fail. Renault, Ford, Toyota and Fiat have been building cars with petrol and diesel engines in Turkey for many years, these cars are exported all over the world. The specialists and the technology are available.

    Without words – glass ball: this car we are never built in a large scale. International no chance. AKP party comrades get a few prototypes and then the air becomes thin. That was it.

    More should not be invested . No dealer, no workshop. And the rest will probably be done "Over the Air" ? So through viewing, disposal of defects, repairs, accident damage, ..

    Turkey Mang is known for many things, but building good cars is not one of them. Why should that be better with e-cars now. If a shot in the oven is guaranteed, like everything that Erdogan drives.

  6. Every E-Auto owner can be used from 2022
    Apply a THG quota and approx. Received 300 €. Greenhouse gas reduction rate! What do you need to do for that. Find the provider on the net, photograph and upload vehicle registration certificates at the front and back and upload. Small e-cars can be used with approx. 300 € at € 0.30 per kW cost 1,000 kW around 5 to 10 thousand km. If the effort is too great, don’t worry the money is not lost, but it goes to our government. A nice gesture to all electric car drivers who accept the additional price for a car to make the air cleaner. In addition to tax exemption and the € 6000 environment and less maintenance, an incentive to the new technology again. It is only to be hoped that solar electricity and solar warm water can also be promoted with THG.

    Well, there is no shortage of new future car manufacturers, at least in the planning. Wait what remains of it in reality. Who then prefers this car brand ? The e-cars are in Turkey and a charging infrastructure ? They are subsidized there ? If not, it will almost impossible to sell something like that, or ? And here the newcomers step around on their feet, only if you want to buy a car that you cannot load at home and there are no workshop net…… These boxes are also not maintenance -free…..

  10. Tiguan,
    How can you compare a VW Tiguan with a Togg. The Togg is an electric car and looks elegant and chic. The Tiguan house baking boring and a combustion engine.

    Reply
  11. Mr. Feddermann,
    No, I didn’t mean that. The headline bothered me "Erdogans Tiguan". Want to say the Togg is an electric car that Tiguan is a combustion engine. So why should that be a Tiguan comparison, is a completely different league. The Tiguan is a great car self -appropriate. If comparisons then make comparisons, then the heading should "Erdogans ID4" be.

    Stylish off, also inside. The Italian designers did a great job. Because from there the draft probably comes from there. I give this car zero chances and it will at most be bought in Turkey – if people can afford something like that. As far as I know from my friend Aytekin living in Istanbul, the e-infrastructure looks even worse than with us. No matter – a good place for D to get rid of the unwanted diesel in the eastern direction
