President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Saturday inaugurated the long-anticipated massive manufacturing plant that will be building Türkiye’s first domestic car brand, Togg.
The Turkish public witnessed another milestone on Saturday, as the opening ceremony in the northwestern province of Bursa, coinciding with the 99th anniversary of the Turkish Republic, marked the official start of the mass production for the car that is expected to hit the road by the end of 2023’s first quarter.
The event, which has also seen Togg’s first all-electric SUV being rolled off the assembly line with President Erdoğan in the driver’s seat, puts Türkiye and President Erdoğan closer to fulfilling a long-held dream of building the country’s first national automobile.
The Turkish leader has long pushed industrialists to build a domestic automobile as part of his vision for making Türkiye an economic powerhouse.
“We are witnessing fulfillment of 60-year dream into reality… Wherever you go you can see Turkish brands… Togg will grace the roads of many countries around the globe as well, as a prestigious Turkish brand,” Erdoğan said.
