TEMSA AND SKODA ELECTRIFICATION SYMBOL COMPANIES

TEMSA CEO Tolga Kaan Doğancıoğlu, who made evaluations on the subject, conveyed the importance of this event for them with the following words: “We, together with our sister company Skoda, did not exhibit only one vehicle at this event. At the same time, we showed our common vision of a sustainable future to all participants, customers and industry stakeholders. The future of public transport in the world is shaped on the basis of electrification. We see that electric buses are rapidly increasing their share in every country in the world. We expect this to accelerate even more in the coming period. We see protecting electrification and taking the necessary steps in this area as a responsibility of manufacturers like us to the world. We are very proud and happy that TEMSA and Skoda have become the symbol companies in our sector with their sense of responsibility, strong technological infrastructure, high production capabilities and the decisive and consistent stance they have taken in this most important field.”

Tanya Alttman, Skoda Transportation Group Senior Vice President of Bus Solutions, said: “After the break caused by COVID-19, we are very happy to take part in this fair again and present the modern solutions we have developed for the city and the city. The potential of the German market for our Group is enormous. However, there is a very serious demand for innovative solutions in ecological and economic terms. We believe that we can help cities achieve their climate change-focused goals with the products we develop. In addition to the trolleybuses, electric buses and diesel city buses in our current portfolio, we are also working on alternative fuel vehicles. In this context, we will introduce our own hydrogen bus, which we will test in the major cities of the Czech Republic, at the end of this year.”
