In Which Models Will TOGG Be Produced?
At the domestic automobile factory, where SUV production will be made in the first place, sedan automobile production will begin later. Expectations of citizens who are investigating whether TOGG sedan will be produced are expected to be realized after 2022. So, will TOGG produce hatchbacks or will TOGG produce mini one? Among the announced information, only SUV and Sedan models are included in the production plan of the domestic automobile TOGG. So what are the features of TOGG?
