Turkish Togg Named Among Top 20 Brands at CES 2022

The US-based Exhibitor magazine has named Turkey’s first indigenous automotive brand, Togg, among one of the top 20 brands that participated in the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2022.

Some 2,300 brands had attended the event which is one of the largest technology and gadget shows in the world, which was held from January 5 to 7 in Las Vegas.

CES also marked Togg’s international debut. Turkey’s Automobile Joint Venture Group, known as Togg, the consortium developing the country’s indigenous car, has introduced the “Transition Concept Smart Device”, a fully electric fastback concept car.

Designed by world-renowned Italian automotive design and coachbuilder Pininfarina, the car joins Togg’s previously unveiled compact electric SUV and sedan concepts.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether the fastback is meant to replace the compact sedan seen earlier or was created just for CES.

The “Transition Concept Smart Device” features sleek styling highlighted by the pillarless suicide-style rear doors.

The illuminated Togg logo, meanwhile, is unique to the car and represents the unification of Eastern and Western cultures.

Togg aims to produce one million vehicles in five different segments by 2030 and will launch its first mass-produced vehicle, an SUV, by the end of 2022.

Togg was launched on June 25, 2018. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in December 2019 unveiled prototypes for the SUV and a sedan, both fully electric and C-segment models.

Togg said it will produce five different models – an SUV, a sedan, a C-hatchback, a B-SUV and a B-MPV – until 2030. Mass production of the SUV will begin by the end of this year, the sedan to follow.

Construction of Togg’s engineering, design and production facilities began in mid-2020. Built on an area of ​​1.2 million square meters (12.9 million square feet) in Gemlik district in northwestern Bursa province, the facility is expected to be completed in the coming months.

Togg has selected advanced lithium-ion battery technology company Farasis as the battery business partner. The homemade car can reach 80% charge in less than 30 minutes with fast charging. It will have a range of between 300 kilometers and 500 kilometers (186 miles to 310 miles).
