If you never heard of TOGG – Türkiye’nin Otomobili Girişim Grubu – do not worry about it. No one did. Until now when the company launched the new C-SUV – also known as the first electric SUV coming from Turkey.
The C-SUV launch in 2022 will position TOGG as Europe’s first non-conventional battery electric SUV manufacturer.In addition to being a born-electric BEV with zero emission, the C-SUV is going to be a smart car with best-in-class features such as the longest wheelbase, the most spacious interior, the best acceleration performance and the lowest total cost of ownership.
TOGG will offer from two lithium-ion battery options: a small one with a range of 300 km (186 miles) and a bigger one with a range of 500 km (300 miles). The base model will be powered by a single electric motor on the rear axle that will deliver a total of 200 horsepower. The more powerful version will get a dual-motor setup – one on the front axle and another one at the rear – with a total output of 400 horsepower. The 200 HP version will go from 0 to 60 mph in just 7.6 seconds, and the 400 HP version in 4.8 seconds.
Turkey’s automobile will reach 80%state of charge in a short time period of less than 30 minutes. Therefore, the car would be charged enough for the rest of the journey during a short coffee break on long routes.
The C-SUV has been designed in cooperation with Pininfarina, and features a genuine and modern look. The design and positioning of the headlights give the vehicle its penetrating looks, while the chrome details that shape the front grille under lines the prestigious appearance with its continuity along the side and rear design.
The C-SUV was also inspired by Turkish culture, and as a result you will notice that the grille and the wheel rims feature a stylish interpretation of tulip design.
The interior is welcoming with carefully selected stylish and high-quality materials and state-of-the-art technology.The wide digital infotainment display emphasizes the advanced technology the car. The user-centric display supports the conversion of the car into a smart living space by embracing all passengers as well as the driver. The unique center console stands out as one of the most important styling and functional feature of the interior. The form, which reminds an aircraft cockpit, also helps control the touch screen via ergonomics of the console, which houses gear and electronic parking brake functions. The user-centric design of the interface on the touch screen supports simplistic and minimalist design of the interior, reducing as much of the physical control switches as possible with the help of voice-command technology. Turkey’s automobile simply proves that high technology can be presented without complexity.
