Finally, the MD9 electriCITY, which was sent to Mersin Metropolitan Municipality Transportation Department, went for a test drive on the city roads.
The electric vehicle, whose test drives started at the request of Mersin Metropolitan Municipality, which strengthens the public transportation network with its environmentalist transportation network, was presented to the drivers and citizens in public transportation. MD9 electriCITY received full marks from users as a result of satisfaction surveys and experiences. Aiming to transform the region into an environmentally friendly center with zero carbon emissions in a short time, Mersin Metropolitan Municipality continues its efforts to replace the vehicles used in public transportation with environmentally friendly vehicles in the coming period.
MD9 electriCITY successfully passed the test drives in the region. Among the most striking features of the vehicle, which received positive feedback from users, are its general design and performance, driving comfort, range values, wide viewing angle of the driver's area and usefulness of the seating plan, as well as conditions such as quiet driving, long charging usage and cost advantages.

We believe that this should also be a very important mobilization move for Turkey's future. Today, our MD9 electriCITY vehicle is actively used in the Presidential Complex, and it continues its demo rides in different cities. As the whole TEMSA family, we would like to thank Mersin Metropolitan Municipality for the vision they have put forward here. We would like to see these vehicles, which come out of our bans in Adana as a product of Turkish industry and carry the traces of Turkish technology and design, in all our cities in the near future. For this, we have carried out all kinds of infrastructure work. We will continue to embrace electrification until the end for a much more environmentally friendly and safe future.”
