The TOGG C-SUV is designed by the Pininfarina house and is a purely electric vehicle. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was present during the presentation of the electric car. It has a purely electric powertrain that has evolved entirely by the mechanics of the TOGG and “belongs”, as copyright at least, in Turkey.
The layout chosen by the company consists of an electric motor of 200 horsepower on the rear axle and a battery cluster that ensures autonomy of 300 kilometres. In its top version, the C-SUV is equipped with an additional electric motor on the front axle and offers a total of 400 horsepower, while the range reaches 480 + kilometres.
According to the Turkish company, in the first case the electric SUV accelerates to 100 km/h from a stop in 7.6 seconds and in the four-wheel version, it takes no more than 4.8 seconds. Note that this is not the first time that Turkey has been trying to sell a real domestic product. Back in 1961 he had created the Devrim, but never managed to reach the production!
Mr Erdogan, adding, says that Turkey is not only a market for technology products but has become a country that develops, produces and exports technology throughout the world. And the C-SUV acts as a demo for this kind of advanced technology as it promises autonomous level 2 driving that will later become Level 3 as well as a system called “Holographic Assistant” and uses holographic technology 3D imaging and eye motion control algorithms to provide an unprecedented experience, while taking advantage of advances in 5G technology.
