Turkey’s economy may have been in poor shape, but that has not stopped development Cars under the TOGG brand. The camouflage prototype of the electric SUV was caught testing on public roads by our spy photographers, featuring an improved design compared to the 2019 concept.
For those unfamiliar with the name, Togg is a car startup to develop and manufacture Turkey’s first cars. The first serial model will be an SUV, which will appear by the end of 2022.
The camouflage prototype looks very similar to the concept car, but a closer look reveals a number of changes. The headlights are slightly larger, the hood flap has shifted back, the wheels are smaller in diameter, the door handles are normal, while the proportions seem to have changed with the shortened rear.
However, overall design is recognizable as an evolution of the concept and seems closer to production. We believe that the changes were necessary to accommodate a special EV platform, electric motors and battery while complying with the rules. Last year, Tog published photos SUV body white from the factory, showcasing the same design as the disguised prototypes.
Earlier, Togg announced the target characteristics of the SUV, which will be available with two different capacities – a single-engine RWD with 200 liters. AWD with 400 hp (298 kW / 406 hp) and a range of 400 km (186 miles). The battery packs will be manufactured in-house in collaboration with the Chinese brand Farasis. There will also be a standalone Level 2 feature that can grow to Level 3 with over-the-air updates and 5G connectivity.
The SUV will be followed by more models with the same architecture dedicated to the EV, including a sedan, hatchback and minivan. They will all be produced in Hemlik district the northwestern province of Bursa in Turkey,
