Electric vehicles also saw a substantial rise in their overall market share, accounting for 10% of all vehicle sales in 2023, compared to just 1.1% in 2022. Since their sales debut in 2015, EVs have steadily gained popularity in Turkey, reaching a total electric vehicle stock of 82,000 by the end of 2023. The introduction of the TOGG T10X in late 2023, the nation’s first domestically manufactured electric car, further fueled this growth.
