In Turkey, a ceremonial presentation of the national automobile brand Togg. It was attended by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. He developed the auto consortium Automobile Joint Venture Group, led by industrialist Gurkan Karakash.
The presentation showed two electric vehicles – a sedan and a crossover. They will go into production from the end of 2021, and they will begin to sell them in 2022. In total, there will be as many as five models in the lineup.
The design of electric cars was developed by the Italian studio Pininfarina. Appearance turned out pretty restrained, and the crossover was shown with two options for the design of the front. In the cabin there are four displays at once, and one of them is reserved for the front passenger. Features include a semi-autonomous driving system and augmented reality technology.
Cars will be offered in two versions. Initial Togg will receive one 200-horsepower engine and will be able to accelerate to hundreds in 7.6 s and overcome 300 km without recharging.
The twin-engine 400-horsepower version will be all-wheel drive, and acceleration to hundreds will take 4.8 s. In this case, the battery is more capacious, and therefore the power reserve will be about 500 km. It will be possible to charge an electric car from a fast station by 80% in half an hour, and from a home network in 10 hours.
