“Turkey's interest in environmentally friendly vehicles is increasing day by day”

Reminding that September 9 is celebrated as the day of electric vehicles in the world every year, TEHAD Chairman of the Board Berkan Bayram said, “The organization we organized for the second time this year was held with the participation of many visitors and brands. We have closely observed how the interest in electric and hybrid vehicles in Turkey has increased in the last 3 years. In addition to the participation of 15 different brands, the close interest of 3 thousand visitors made us very happy. Within the scope of the event, a total of 5040 kilometers traveled with environmentally friendly vehicles, and 15 electric models covered this distance with zero emissions, that is, leaving a zero carbon footprint. We also organized different training programs and competitions beyond the vehicle experience. We received strong support from universities and various non-governmental organizations. Therefore, we saw that the interest in environmentalist vehicles in Turkey continues to increase day by day and that the preferences will rapidly move in this direction in the future. We are also very happy for the efforts and support of the brands. We expect a wider participation in the coming year as new brands and new models enter our country's market. In 2022, we aim for an organization that grows every year with the participation of an average of 5000 people.”

This year, the Electric and Hybrid Driving Week offered a real experience to people who are curious about electric vehicles but have not had the chance to experience them, with the slogan "Hearing is not enough, you have to try". While consumers were experiencing electric vehicles, they received information on many different topics such as electric vehicles, autonomous driving, hybrid engines, charging stations, battery technologies from industry professionals attending the event. Various activities such as drone training, mini electric vehicle races, Toyota hybrid driving trainings and Suzuki safe driving course were held during the Electric and Hybrid Driving Week, which plays an important role in the widespread use of environmentally friendly and zero-emission vehicles throughout the country. The solar panel supported charging unit established by Enisolar showed the participants that electricity can be obtained from renewable energy sources and used in transportation and housing.
