While continuing to be the pioneer of these firsts, our factory in Adana is not only a production base, but also a production base. zamWe will continue to position it as a technology base at the moment. We are determined to take the electric vehicle mobilization, which we started in our country in the past period and strengthened with each passing day, even further. Today, we have 81 electric vehicles among 6 vehicles we have delivered to Adana Metropolitan Municipality. I hope we will increase the number of these vehicles in the near future.
