Turkish Cargo carries Türkiye’s pride Togg to Argentina

Sep 15, 2022

Turkish Cargo transported Togg, which is set to be one of the global brands of Türkiye, to perform its winter tests.

The Togg smart device, whose road, safety, performance and range/battery tests are continuing at accredited test centers in different parts of the world, flew to Tierra del Fuego, Argentina for its winter tests. After the journey that started at Istanbul Airport and continued to Argentina, a commercial film about the cooperation of Turkish Cargo and Togg was released.

On the shipment, Turkish Airlines Chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee Prof. Dr. Ahmet Bolat stated; “We are celebrating the successful performance shown at international tests by Togg smart device, one of the most ambitious projects of Türkiye. Doing our part as the national flag carrier with the power of being the airline that flies to more countries than any other in the world, we are proud to deliver the Turkish automobile and our country's technology exports worldwide."

Togg CEO M. Gürcan Karakaş stated that they are happy to cooperate with Turkish Airlines first for CES 2022, and now for the winter testing in Argentina, and said: “From the first day we set out on our journey, we have been acting on the principle of choosing our business partners among the best in our country and the world. Following our ‘Transition Concept Smart Device’, which we exhibited at the Consumer Electronics Show CES in Las Vegas, the USA in January 2022, we have now undertaken yet another solid collaboration by transporting our Togg Smart Device to the accredited test center in Ushuaia, Argentina, the closest point to the South Pole, in cooperation with Turkish Cargo, for the continuation of our winter testing. Our tests continue in various accredited test centers, which are the world’s leading ones. We stand by our word be it snow, winter or mud, even on the other side of the world if need be. We are taking firm steps towards our goal to launch on the promised date.”
