WORKING SOUND IN THE WORLD:
Turkey's automobile not only in our country, brought many parts of the world sound. In particular, our nation has shown great interest and favor to this project that it has been craving for decades. To engage in such a move even 60 years after Turkey; it has become a nightmare for some of the circles within us, just as there was hope for our people. Those who were disturbed by the growth, strength and self-confidence of our country immediately started an intense smear campaign.
Those who did not nail a single nail for the good of the country and the nation in their lives, entered the race to produce slander in chorus. Instead of being a partner of the joy of 83 million, they went on a public search for funny reasons from the menu to the start button. With the headlines of “the car had a hood and a headlight”, they revealed their own levels, their own ignorance, and vile complexes.
THE DEFECTS NOT FOUND
Despite all their efforts and research, they have not found any flaws in the project. All of the headlines they had thrown with intent to make fun of were turned around and smeared on the hands of the bosses. All of the 7 million, from 70 to 83, each individual of our nation with his young and old; it embraced this project, which represents our country's strength and production capacity. Millions of hearts have been excited again in the face of a dream that has been subjected to sabotage from inside and outside for years.
WE SPEED OUR PROJECTS
In order not to frustrate these expectations of our nation, we worked and struggled without saying coronavirus day and night. All the world at a time when the stop or suspend their investments, from health to Turkey, transport, agriculture, industry, energy, we accelerated our project to the environment in all areas.
THE BEST ANSWER
Today we have laid the foundation of Turkey together Automobile Plant, it is one of the investment that's our golden chain ring. Today, we are not only enjoying the joy of starting a new investment, but also having the rightful pride of realizing a huge project despite the epidemic. When we introduce the car, we give the best answer to those who ask “where will these be produced?” And those who try to kill this beautiful work in the design phase.
WILL CHANGE THE PERCEPTION
It is not just a factory that we started building today. This is a huge complex with different production facilities that will radically change the perception of the factory in people's minds. We will carry out all processes of our national cars from pre-production to post-production. In other words, the R&D and design of all cars to be produced by TOGG will be done here, and mass production will be started here.
INSPIRATION WILL BE INSOLVED
With the test and customer experience park, our factory will serve our citizens directly; children and young people will meet new technologies here. While doing all this, we keep our environmental sensitivity at the highest level. With environmentally friendly technologies that we will use in the production and construction of the factory, we raise the bar even higher in this field. I believe that this work, which will be one of the symbols of our vision of a big, strong and innovative country, will inspire young generations.
RECOGNIZED FROM OUR NATION
The vehicles, which we presented to the public on December 27, were also highly appreciated by our nation. Surveys show that our nation's support rate for this project is over 95 percent. This situation increases the motivation of both us and the team that gives their heart.
DESIGN REGISTRATION FINISHED
Pandemic period when completing the whole process to begin construction of the factory on the one hand, on the other hand, we completed 78 per cent of the 93 selections consisting of supplier firms established in Turkey. Registration of our exterior design in China and the interior and exterior design of the European Union countries are over. The design registration processes in Russia, South Korea, Japan and America are ongoing. All of the user research and engineering studies were carried out within the framework of the planned calendar.
EUROPE'S SUV MODEL
Today, we start the construction of our factory by saying “Bismillah”. We plan to complete the factory in 18 months and download our vehicle from the tape in the last quarter of 2022. Thus Europe's innate power to set off the first and only SUV model from Turkey. 3 years after commencing production, single-brand passenger cars produced to the highest yerlilikl our country will be Turkey's Car.
WE WILL EXPOSE IT
Over four thousand citizens will be employed in the factory area. When we consider indirect employment, this number will be much higher. In addition, in cooperation with universities in the region, we will provide industry organizations with qualified workforce. As we develop the supply structure in the industry, we will pave the way for new initiatives and innovative ideas.
“Scion initiatives” that have not worked for any major producer before have already joined the TOGG suppliers. These companies, which will prove themselves with TOGG, have the potential to become global suppliers. As we can produce a world brand in reversing cameras, groundbreaking works in smart life technologies will come from Turkish companies.
WE ARE READY FOR THE BEST LEAGUE
We are ready to be a player in the best league in the world with our product range, technology, business model, business plan and suppliers. Gemlik, which I see as the golden triangle of industry and technology, has a lot of work to do in this project. Hopefully, as a lot of our business, from Turkey's Car of the project together with the flow we get our forehead.
Turkey; It is a big and strong country with its history, values, geography and production capacity. If we work, strive, and state and nation back to back, there is no obstacle that we cannot overcome by Allah's permission. The success story that we turned into reality 60 years after the revolutionary cars is the best example of this.
Speaking at the construction start ceremony of TOGG, Industry and Technology Minister Mustafa Varank said:
an important threshold in Turkey today we leave behind the car. The dream of years will come true in Gemlik, in the campus that will be built right here. Our environmentally friendly smart car will also be on the road from an environmentally friendly smart facility. We are excited but proud as well.
WE HAVE CLASSED IN DEVELOPMENT
Turkey's economy has left behind 18-year period, industry, exports and innovation has made great strides. At the heart of all these breakthroughs are the policies and projects initiated under the leadership of our President. Thus, on the one hand, while we were passing the class in development, on the other hand, we carried the welfare of our nation to a much higher level.
WE HAVE PRODUCTION INFRASTRUCTURE
Turkey has the capability to produce virtually every industry. We have production infrastructures that host planned industrialization and spread all over the country. We have R&D Centers and Technoparks that we set up from scratch, which brighten bright and innovative ideas. Thanks to these installed infrastructures; We were able to realize the mass production of a world-class intensive care respiratory device, as well as in record time, during the epidemic.
We are on the verge of big beats
With our studies in the field of vaccines and pharmaceuticals, we have become a country that is followed in the world. With our high-tech products in the defense industry, we are rapidly moving towards becoming a strong global player. We are on the verge of great leaps in rail systems.
Of course, we do not intend to settle with these. Our target is to become one of the leading countries that produce and even direct technology. Here in Turkey the car is extremely critical that we stand diligently on a project for the automotive industry to prepare for the coming age.
WE INTRODUCED THE WORLD
In December, Turkey's car we introduced to the world. Girişim Group continued its activities without slowing down. The team was expanded, designs were registered in the European Union and China. Most of the supplier selections have been completed. Among the suppliers of TOGG are young enterprises, start-ups that have never worked with any major manufacturer before. These companies think differently and sign new and original works.
COMMUNICATION IS IMPROVING INFRASTRUCTURE
One of them is an early stage initiative that came out of Ankara and METU Technopolis. These young people will produce the cameras of our car. Another supplier is the start-up established by a Turkish entrepreneur living in Germany. This company working in the field of smart life technologies; developing the infrastructure that enables the car to communicate with the city, the road and the charging stations. In a much simpler way, when you use this technology, your car becomes able to talk to everything connected to the network.
INCREASED REALITY TECHNOLOGY
The last example is quite remarkable. This supplier uses augmented reality technology. Thus, it enables the navigation system to come alive before your eyes. See this initiative despite the establishment in our country, settled in the United States failed to find its market in Turkey. Together with TOGG, we brought this team back to our country.
WE OPEN IT
There is no need for big money to sign innovative and pursuing works. If your intellectual capital is strong, the doors can be opened up to you. Here we are with the car's Turkey, in addition to creating a global brand in the sector, the contribution of our suppliers, we also offer this work paves the way to become a brand.
WE WILL BUILD FROM THE FOUNDATION
In addition to strengthening Turkey's existing suppliers with cars, the game will add new skilled and talented players. We will prepare these players for global competition. Thus, we will build the ecosystem from the foundation with our unique perspective and Turkish signature.
WE WILL START APPLICATION
We studied these issues in detail in the Mobility Vehicles and Technologies Roadmap, which we prepared in close cooperation with the industry. Near zamCurrently sharing with the public in our road map, Turkey will prepare for the future we will begin to implement this plan.
“IT WILL BE A TECHNOLOGY BASE”
Stating that the factory will be a technology base rather than production, TOGG Chairman Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu said, “Our President made a call to us in 2017. Turkey's car gave us the task of realizing his dream of. We went on a long and difficult journey with our father-in-law. Turkey will become a major player in the automotive world is changing table shells all over the world. Because this is 83 million cars. Only brand will be produced in Turkey, we will design patents. We will achieve this job. The new partnership culture we started with TOGG is a first in our country. We build more than the factory here. This will be a technology base, not a production. ”
“WE WILL BUILD THE CLEAN FACILITY OF EUROPE”
"We will be celebrating the vehicle's landing in the last quarter of 2022," said TOGG CEO Gürcan Karakaş. This fact encouraged us to continue our way with the TOGG brand. Turkey is Car of the national and local. Ownership right is ours. This makes us independent and free. Our license and privilege rights belong to us. We have completed 90 percent of our scales. Projects like us were either stopped or delayed during the pandemic period. Our team is growing. Our ecosystem is growing. We see that the Information Valley, in which we are located, is coming from international companies. We design our factory to produce 93 thousand vehicles. We want a smart car to leave a smart and clean facility. We install a system that prevents errors with cameras and sensors at every stage of production. Turkey's first facility will establish Europe's clean here, "he said.
