Turkey’s First Locally Produced Car

Turkey’s First Locally Produced Car

April 2023

In 2020, after years of waiting, the features and design of the car were introduced, which will be produced locally in Turkey. The construction of TOGG’s (brand name of Turkey’s first locally produced car) factory in Bursa with an investment cost of TRY 22 billion (EUR 934 million) has been completed and the factory commenced its operations on the Republic Day of Turkey, October 29, 2022. There are currently around 1,500 employees at the factory. It is expected that approximately 4000 more people will be employed at the factory in the future.

A total of five models will be produced and 175,000 cars will come off the production lines annually. The state provides great incentives to domestic automobiles. Incentives such as customs duty exemption, VAT exemption, 10-year income tax withholding support and purchase guarantee will facilitate the production. In addition, qualified personnel support will be provided.

In March 2023, the pre-order draw for the first TOGG model was completed with over 170,000 applicants. Among these applicants, 20,000 have been granted the right to obtain their cars in 2023. While the first orders are being delivered, all deliveries will be completed towards the end of 2023. After being put on sale in Turkey, it will be available for sale in Europe in September 2024.
