Agreements Have Been Made with 3 Game Firms
“For over a year and a half, we have chosen scenarios that offer 350 user experiences from thousands of ideas. We identified 40 of them as having a high degree of innovation, and we searched for startups that could do them. And among them, it is interesting that we encountered 3 game companies in line with today's conditions. While we are doing all these activities, we also want to have fun while going from A to B. Therefore, for us, for example, three game companies have come together. They are working on these issues.”
When will TOGG be on sale?
Industry and Technology Minister Mustafa Varank said, “The vehicles that come off the mass production line at the end of 2022 will be put on the market in the first quarter of 2023. Turkey's automobile should not be seen as a car. Turkey's automobile project is actually Turkey's answer to the changing automotive industry. When we first announced the vehicle, we said that it will be electric from birth, have some autonomous features, and that we should see this vehicle as a technology platform, since we also have intellectual property rights, and that we can integrate technologies developed by 'startups' into this vehicle. People were saying it was too early for an electric vehicle. At the point we have reached now, companies that have been producing cars for a century are worried about how we will catch up with this electric vehicle revolution.” used the phrases.
