She was followed by Renault Clio (24,377 units) and the Toyota Corolla sedan (18,961 units). Without revolutionizing this established order, a 100% Turkish manufacturer is making its big debut this year in its core market: TOGG. Formed as a consortium of state enterprises and public financial holding companies, it intends to distribute 100% electric models. The first model to embody all these ambitions is a C-segment SUV: the TOGG T10X. Displaying a refined style and a highly technological interior, it aims to be positioned as a premium model. It will be launched in Turkey in the second half of 2023, and will its big arrival in Europe and France in 2024.
