The variety of charging factors is quickly rising in Türkiye and has surpassed 8,800, Mustafa Yılmaz, the pinnacle of Türkiye’s Power Market Regulatory Authority (EPDK), mentioned Tuesday.
The rise within the charging factors could possibly be primarily attributed to the demand and curiosity within the nation’s first homegrown absolutely electrical automobile – Togg – that started deliveries earlier this 12 months.
“We’ve reached a complete of 8,861 charging factors. Our nation has roughly one quick charging (DC) level for each 14 autos. Türkiye ranks first by way of DC charging factors per car in Europe,” Yılmaz mentioned.
Almost 22,900 electrical autos (EVs) had been bought from January via August this 12 months, in keeping with the Automotive Distributors and Mobility Affiliation (ODMD) knowledge.
This interprets into an over 597% improve in comparison with the three,283 electrical vehicles that had been bought in the identical interval a 12 months in the past.
Togg, the primary home Turkish automaker, earlier introduced it delivered 3,400 of its T10X as of the tip of August. Of this, 1,965 had been delivered final month alone.
Yılmaz, in a written assertion, famous that there are 6,633 gradual charging (AC) and a couple of,228 DC charging factors at 4,221 charging stations nationwide.
He emphasised that there are at the moment charging stations in 81 provinces, and the variety of charging stations throughout the nation continues to rise.
“After all, that is immediately associated to the variety of autos, however because the variety of EVs will increase quickly, it’s equally vital for our charging factors to extend on the identical tempo. That is actually gratifying for our business,” Anadolu Company (AA) reported Yılmaz as saying.
In response to the ODMD knowledge earlier this month, battery-powered and hybrid autos noticed their market shares attain 3.9% and 10.4% between January and August, up from simply 0.9% and 10.3% within the first eight months of final 12 months.

Whereas the variety of electrical autos in Türkiye is rising, the EPDK can be taking steps to facilitate the lives of electrical car homeowners by regulating charging providers.
With the regulation, cost level operator license holders can designate some or all the charging factors on their charging community as inexperienced charging stations, supplied all of the electrical energy provided to these stations comes from renewable power sources.
Highlighting the significance of inexperienced charging stations, that are licensed to have all their electrical energy provided from renewable power sources, Yılmaz mentioned, “It’s at the moment attainable to ascertain an built-in electrical storage facility throughout the charging station to fulfill the electrical energy wants of any charging station utilizing electrical energy from renewable power sources.”
“Now, along with built-in charging stations with electrical storage and renewable power manufacturing amenities, electrical car charging providers may also be supplied via inexperienced charging stations licensed beneath YEK-G (the Renewable Power Supply Assure Doc).”
“We anticipate our business to proceed its investments on this regard,” Yılmaz concluded.
