On Sunday, Turkish Minister of Industry and Technology Mustafa Warank surprised his country’s parliament by coming while he was driving the local electric car (TOGG), which decorated the parliament’s yard.
The Turkish minister was accompanied in the car by the two deputies of the Justice and Development Party, Ismet Yilmaz, and of the National Movement Party, Arkan Akcay.
The minister, who came to the parliament to participate in a session on the next year’s budget, made statements upon his arrival at the parliament headquarters to the journalists who were waiting for him.
And Rank said that Turkey, through the domestic electric car, has achieved a 60-year-old dream.
And the local car remained in the parliament yard for hours, as the deputies took pictures in front of it.
On October 29, Turkey celebrated the production of its first domestic car, marking the start of serial manufacturing of its electric car, “Tog”.
Ankara owns 100 percent of the intellectual and industrial rights to the car, and seeks through it to build a global brand and form the nucleus of an integrated Turkish mobility system.
The Tug plant will produce 175,000 cars annually when it reaches full capacity and will provide 4,300 direct jobs and 20,000 indirect jobs.
