In fact, in the first four hours after pre-booking opened, Togg received more orders than were sold in the entire country in all of 2022.
However, Togg only plans to build 20,000 Togg T10X cars during the year.
Consequently, the first 20,000 production places will be raffled off to interested parties.
The Togg T10X entry-level model will be rear-wheel drive and feature an engine that delivers 160 kW (218 hp).
Togg will offer this variant with two battery options: a small battery of 52.4 kWh with a range of 314 kilometers and a larger battery of 88.5 kWh with a range of 523 kilometers.
Although Togg is experiencing great demand in the domestic market, the company also has plans to launch in Europe, including Sweden.
Production for the European market is scheduled to begin next year.
According to Togg CEO Gürcan Karakas, "At the moment, we are focusing on domestic deliveries.
But the unprecedented interest in Turkey has laid the foundation for our planned introduction to European export markets in 2024." The Togg T10X has been making headlines recently and has even been dubbed the "Turkish Tesla" by some.
Togg, which stands for Türkiye'nin Otomobili Girişim Grubu, is a consortium of Turkish industrial giants that banded together to create a domestic car manufacturer.
Togg aims to design, develop, and produce Turkey's first domestically produced car.
The Togg T10X is the company's first offering and marks Turkey's entry into the electric car market.
The T10X is expected to be priced between €30,000 and €40,000, putting it in the mid-range segment of the market.
The Togg T10X has a sleek design with a sporty appearance.
The car features a unique front grille that gives it a distinctive look.
The interior is also modern and well-designed, with a large touchscreen display that dominates the center console.
The Togg T10X is designed to be an eco-friendly car with a focus on sustainability.
The car is powered by a lithium-ion battery pack, and the company claims that it is capable of being charged from 20% to 80% in just 30 minutes.
The T10X also features regenerative braking, which converts energy from braking into electricity and stores it in the battery pack.
Togg's entry into the electric car market is part of a larger trend of electric vehicle adoption worldwide.
As concerns about climate change and air pollution continue to grow, more people are turning to electric cars as a cleaner and more sustainable form of transportation.
The Turkish government has also been supportive of Togg's efforts to create a domestically produced electric car.
Turkey's President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has stated that he wants Turkey to become a player in the global electric car market.
The Turkish government has provided financial support to Togg, including a $3.7 billion investment to build a factory in the city of Bursa.
The factory is expected to have an annual production capacity of 175,000 cars.
The Togg T10X is a significant step forward for Turkey's auto industry, which has long relied on imports.
With the T10X, Turkey will join the growing list of countries producing electric cars, including the United States, China, and
