Turkish Cargo has transported Turkey’s first electric automobile to the US following the signing of a new partnership.

The air cargo transport operator for Turkish Airlines has become the logistics solutions partner of Togg (Turkey’s Automobile Joint Venture Group) and has subsequently carried the latter’s electric automobile to tech expo CES in Las Vegas, US.

Togg will launch the automobile at the CES expo between January 5-8.

Togg CEO, M. Gurcan Karakas, said: “Of course we were going to carry our smart product with the global Turkish Airlines brand to CES 2022 where we will present our vision for the future. We thank Turkish Cargo for being our partner in this journey towards #NewLeauge to become a global brand in CES 2022 where the technology world comes together. We will present our smart product with enriched design and futuristic touches as it tells the story of transformation of mobility that launches automobiles into third life cycle.”

Turkish Cargo offers air cargo operations to more than 320 destinations, 97 of which are cargo destinations, in 127 countries around the world. With a main hub in Istanbul, the operator has a fleet of 373 aircraft, 23 of which are freighters.

Earlier this month, Turkish Cargo transported a Ukrainian Sich-2-30 earth observation satellite from the Ukraine to the US.
