Uzbek president receives Türkiye’s 1st indigenous electric car

by Anadolu Agency


Türkiye’s first indigenous electric car Togg on Wednesday was presented to Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev.

In a phone call, Mirziyoyev thanked Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for Togg, according to the Turkish Communications Directorate.

The Uzbek president stressed that Türkiye’s breakthrough in the field of industry under Erdogan is “quite valuable,” adding that Togg will be recorded as the success of the Turkic world as well as Türkiye.

Also discussing the bilateral relations over the phone, Erdogan said the Turkic world will move forward with unity, and strong cooperation between Türkiye and Uzbekistan is one of the main pillars of this understanding.

Mirziyoyev became the second leader to acquire Togg after Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev.

In early April, Togg took to the road after its ceremonial delivery to Erdogan.

While presenting the car to Mirziyoyev, Turkish Industry and Technology Minister Mustafa Varank said: “We are very happy and proud to have brought such a technological marvel produced by Türkiye to Uzbekistan…”

Along with Varank, Mirziyoyev drove Togg in the Uzbek capital Tashkent.

“The president also drove the car. He was really satisfied,” Varank said.

For his part, Mirziyoyev said: “I know the meaning of this gift. It will be recorded as the success of Turkic states in the world. It is an indicator of what Türkiye can do. The doors of your ancestral homeland are always open to you.”
