TEMSA, which continues to operate under the Sabancı Holding and PPF Group cooperation, continues to be at the forefront of Europe's electrification.
TEMSA attended Autocar EXPO, one of the most significant events in France in its industry, after launching the LD SB E, the first intercity electric bus created by a European manufacturer, at the Hannover IAA Transportation Fair last month.
TEMSA showcased its MD9 electriCITY, which is already on European roads, and LD SB E, the youngest member of its electric vehicle portfolio, at its stand. TEMSA also offered the participants with the experience of LD SB Plus test drive.
Serkan Uzunay, TEMSA France Director, reminded that there are five different electric vehicle models that TEMSA has launched today and made ready for mass production, and added, "With this product lineup, we are in the unique position of being the only manufacturer in Europe that can provide its clients with an electric vehicle in every segment.
On the one hand, we're striving to broaden our selection of electric products, but on the other, we're working to maintain our technology leadership position in the electrification industry. Like all of our other electric vehicles, the two that we debuted at Autocar Expo also have battery packs that were designed, developed and manufactured by TEMSA.
This gives us a tremendous amount of flexibility to produce vehicles that are suitable for various environments and geographies."
WE ARE READY FOR LEADING THE TRANSFORMATION OF EUROPE
Uzunay emphasized that Europe has a very important place in TEMSA's story of growth and added, France is one of our top priorities in Europe, and as of today, approximately 6,000 of our vehicles are on the road here. In a similar spirit, the quantity of our TEMSA-branded vehicles is growing daily in nations like Germany, Italy, and the UK. The emphasis on sustainability and electrification is changing, especially in these European nations. With our technology and high-caliber production, TEMSA is prepared to take the lead in this transformation and help European cities transition to zero-emission living.
