This is the first Turkish electric car
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday, April 4, officially became the first owner of the Turkish Togg T10X electric car, the deliveries of which started on that day.
Erdogan, accompanied by First Lady Emine Erdogan, was delivered a Togg T10X electric car model at a ceremony at the Presidential Complex in Ankara. Their all-electric C-segment SUV is painted Anadolu Red.
“Today, together we are witnessing the realization of the 60-year dream of our people,” Erdogan said. According to Erdogan, the second car, delivered on Monday, will be used as a company car. Its color is called Gemlik, named after the blue waters of the area in which the Togg campus is located.
The owners of the first batch of T10X were selected by digital draw. Demand was so high that the automaker had to increase the number of units. The manufacturer will ship 20,000 vehicles in April, not 12,000 as previously planned.
