Domestic Car's Engine Will Come From Germany

Regarding the 'domestic car TOGG', TOGG CEO Gürcan Karakaş said, “The battery will be domestic. It will be produced in Turkey "and" Bosch is doing it better than anyone else. It is better to buy than to do it on our production scale ”.

Black eyebrows, Habertürk writer in a statement to Fatih Altaylı; He stated that a German-origin Bosch engine will be used in TOGG car. Karakaş said, “The engine issue is important. 400 kg battery pack and one or two engines. Maybe even more on some models. We are talking about a sum here. Electric motor, reducers, connections. A whole. Can it be done? Of course, two are done. But Bosch does this better than anyone else. Better to buy than to do it on our scale of production. We do not start with a few hundred thousand production! We start with a few thousand. It will rise, but initially thousands of figures. There is no logic in producing this engine. Receiving is more efficient in every way. Oh, it would be better to produce numbers increase, that is a separate matter. But we cannot talk about everything from today. It's a job after all. There are commercial issues. "It makes more sense to buy from Bosch today."

The prominent headings of Karakaş's statements in the article Altaylı gave today are as follows:

  • Our 15-year planning is ready. We started with the C SUV. C sedan is ready. C hatchback, B SUV and C MPV will come. We currently have prototypes of both, the SUV and the sedan. We have already shown this. We offered a product beyond an early stage prototype.
  • Almost all of our supplier agreements are over. We launched many start ups. Products that are never opened an office abroad can not be thought or intention of opening markets in Turkey have come as start-up drugs. We work with many of them.
    Our cost elements are transparent and open to competition. We made a cost analysis of 102 different parts or whole parts. Then we sat down with the suppliers. So we are comfortable with the supplier. Nothing unknown with hidden cover. We know what to buy and what it costs. They also know that we know them.
  • The profitability will come not from production and sales, but from the internet of things. Your car shopping will be a part of your bill payments, healthcare system and daily routines.
  • We do not install electric car charging infrastructures in cities. These are the work of local governments and central administrations. Because we won't be the only ones who demand this energy. So nobody should think these charging stations are our job.
  • sit well with industrial companies in Turkey, 'Can you tell us produce these parts?' we ask. They say 'Of course we produce' and they want blue prints immediately, they want to get all the details. This is a bad aftermarket. Foreign automotive companies have pulled the supplier industry to a very bad point. Robotized. You give everything, they produce it. They do not offer an intellectual contribution, design contribution, or engineering contribution. At least it doesn't offer most of it. That's why it is not correct to call this a complete supplier industry. Now we are trying to turn them into a project partner that will encourage them to think too. They will come. But rest assured, they're not in a good spot. They have the ability to produce, but they are a kind of porter. A low value-added porter.
  • The battery will be local. It will be produced in Turkey. It will be inside the facility in our Gemlik. We will manufacture the battery, battery pack, battery control unit, all by ourselves. I'll tell you that much. Let's not go into too much detail.
  • The engine issue is important. 400 kg battery pack and one or two engines. Maybe even more on some models. We are talking about a sum here. Electric motor, reducers, connections. A whole. Can it be done? Of course, two are done. But Bosch does this better than anyone else. Better to buy than to do it on our scale of production. We do not start with a few hundred thousand productions. We start with a few thousand. It will rise, but initially thousands of figures. There is no logic in producing this engine. Receiving is more efficient in every way. Oh, it would be better to produce numbers increase, that is a separate matter. But we cannot talk about everything from today. It's a job after all, there are commercial issues. It makes more sense to buy from Bosch today.
  • The company's paid-up capital in 2022 will be 3,5 billion TL. It's the same zamTOGG will make it the highest paid-in capital automotive company at that time. The total investment cost will be 22 billion TL, as stated in the incentive certificate. Partners will not receive any dividends for the first 15 years. Until today, no loss figures have been spoken except for investment figures.
