TOGG CEO Gürcan Karakaş shared a clue about the price of the domestic car, which is planned to come off the band at the end of 2022. Karakaş said, “Our pricing will be competitive compared to the price of an internal combustion C-SUV at the end of 2022 and the beginning of 2023. The price will be determined by the conditions at that time.” said.
Fatih Altaylı, who visited the TOGG factory in the past days, wrote a column on the subject and said that the cost of the vehicle would be around 40 thousand euros. Speaking to Yeni Şafak, TOGG CEO Gürcan Karataş gave information about the price of the domestic car.
While studies on domestic automobiles continue in Turkey, citizens are most curious about the price of domestic vehicles. New statements were made by TOGG CEO Gürcan Karakaş for the domestic vehicle, which is expected to be made more accessible. Along with the explanations, it was seen that many different speculations and news on the agenda, especially about the price of the vehicle, were not valid.
“THE PRICE WILL BE DETERMINED ACCORDING TO THE INSIDE COMBUSTION C-SUV”
One of the most curious things about the domestic car is whether the citizen can buy it. Making an evaluation about the price, Karakaş said, “Our solution partners and our team have been discussing the price issue for 1,5 years. Our pricing will be competitive with the price of an internal combustion C-SUV in late 2022 and early 2023. The price will be determined by the conditions at that time. In terms of quantity, the public has an agreement to purchase 15 thousand units from us in 30 years. I don't think they're going to get it in the form of a pile in the first place. They don't want it anyway. Therefore, the first vehicles we will produce will reach everyone.” said.
“2030 MILLION VEHICLES WILL BE MANUFACTURED UNTIL 1”
Providing information on production, Karakaş said, “We are planning to produce 2030 million 5 thousand vehicles in 1 different segments until 80. First of all, we determined the annual production as 100 thousand units and the next production as 175 thousand units. But in case of high demand, we can increase our capacity very quickly 3 months in advance. Our first productions will start with the C-SUV, and in the following period, we will have B-SUV and sedan models.” used the phrases.
“WE WILL WAIT 18 MONTHS FOR EXPORT”
Talking about exports, Karakaş said, “We will not start exporting immediately with the Turkey launch. A model that is not successful in its own country has no chance of success abroad. We will observe Europe for 18 months and start exporting to big countries such as Germany and France. We do not have any compulsion to go anywhere for export. We will give priority to the countries closest to this task. Scandinavian countries are also included. We can reduce the waiting period of 18 months by 3 months depending on the maturity and demand situation.” made a statement.
