Turkey, which lacks the automotive industry, has long relied on foreign-made vehicles. But that will soon be over. The Turkish consortium TOGG (Türkiye'ninOtomobili Girişim Grubu), with the help of Pininfarina Italy, has announced the first all-electric electric SUV as a privately-owned domestic car. "The Turkish dream is a historic event that will come true," said Erdogan, expressing his hopes for the EV.
Even the base grade has enough specifications for everyday life with output of 200 hp and cruising range of about 300 km, but if you need longer distance running, it is equipped with dual motors and outputs 400 hp and 480 km cruising range higher grade There is also. TOGG has a charger of about 150 kW, and it is possible to charge 80% in 30 minutes. In addition, it is equipped with a level 2 semi-automatic driving function called "Slow Traffic Pilot", which is the first domestic private car, and it can be upgraded to level 3 or higher in the future.
The interior equipment is also advanced, and many functions are digitized, such as an infotainment system that arranges a display on the passenger side, a holographic assistant function that reduces the driver's gaze movement, and it is always necessary to update the system software OTA It also has a communication function.

TOGG's electric SUV will be launched in 2022, but the manufacturer has yet to clarify how much the car will cost. However, given the performance and equipment this much, it should be a relatively expensive car.
furtherTurkish statisticsAccording to the data from the Bureau (TurkStat), Turkey's average annual income is about $ 4,576. This is only about 500,000 yen in Japanese yen. Also, considering the prevalence of charging infrastructure, the number of people who can purchase this electric SUV in 2022 is likely to be quite limited.
There is also a sedan model in the TOGG concept. Hopefully, it will be a little closer to the price range that can be bought by the common people.
