Doğan Trend Automotive CEO, Kağan Dağtekin, in his assessment, said, “We have briefly described the British MG brand, which has a history of 100 years. zamWe brought it together with Turkish customers as soon as possible and entered the market with our 4% electric cars. MG is one of the brands of SAIC, which has factories in 7 different countries in the world and produces 50 million cars per year. Electric vehicles are a very new market for Turkey. Although everyone's interest is high, its distinguishing features stand out directly as you use it. We see electric vehicle rental as a very complex operation. It takes a dual effort to develop a project together and first get the employees to believe in the electric vehicle and then convey it to the customers. As Doğan Trend Automotive, we agree with Enterprise Turkey, with which we have maintained our commercial cooperation for many years, about the widespread use of electric vehicles in Turkey. In line with this common strategy; We included 20 fully electric MG ZS EV models in Enterprise's daily rental operations at select locations in our country. We delivered our vehicles with cables that can be charged at home as well as cables for fast charging stations.

Thus, customers who need to rent a car will have a real experience with a fully electric car. Because the answers to the question marks that may occur for electric vehicles are given in the test drive. 1 minutes or 1 hour of driving is not enough for these test drives. When users use these cars in their daily routine of 2-XNUMX days, we see that their worries and question marks are gone. In this sense, we are very pleased with our cooperation with Enterprise”.
Turkey is experiencing the SUV transformation!
Kağan Dağtekin also mentioned other changing dynamics in the Turkish vehicle market in his speech and said, “100 of every 40 cars sold in the world and in Turkey are SUVs. This change continues in Turkey with each passing year. While only some luxury brands had SUV models 5 years ago, nowadays the trend from sedans to SUVs is increasing. This demand is also seen in the rental market. Thanks to the SUV, vehicle users not only meet their needs in the city with a more compact vehicle, but also go out of the city. zamAt the same time, they are driving a safe and high car. In 10 years, we will start to see electric cars more and more all over the world. In countries that have completed their development, such as Norway, we can see that the sales of electric vehicles for one year have already exceeded the sales of gasoline vehicles. By looking at this, as long as the policies and infrastructures of the countries allow; We foresee that the demand for rational, more enjoyable, more efficient and environmentally friendly electric cars will increase. As Doğan Trend Automotive, we are proud to lead this. We believe that car rental will also change direction in parallel with this.”
