The electric vehicle which has been developed by Turkey’s Hacettepe University is underway to appear in the roads in the upcoming months.
Prof. Dr. Murat Tuncer, Rector of Hacettepe University, briefed about activities which have been managed at the university. Indicating the first electric car which is being made by the Turkish engineers would appear in the market within one or two months, Prof. Tuncer said the works were positive for the production and sales of first 500 units. Remarking that he would be driving the first electric car, Tuncer continued; “The electric vehicle we are going to make will be much cheaper than the vehicles in the market. Almost the entire components are made by Turkish products. One each has been improved at our Teknokent. It is extremely a harmonious car. I have also driven. In other words, we can say it is in the mode of a race car. It speeds up excellently.” Tuncer marked the electric vehicle would feature in various models such as sports, official position and family type. He concluded, “I think the electric vehicle would be a prestige project for our university and country.”
