What is TOGG?

TOGG (Turkey’s Automobile Enterprise Group) is an initiative that attracts attention with the advanced comprehensive and sustainability-oriented perspective offered by Turkey’s automotive industry. The history of its establishment and its development process, how it emerged and the stages it went through can be seen.

This vision has shaped TOGG’s product range and determined its strategies for the future.

Importance for Türkiye
