Entry into force of the SCT regulation for electric vehicles

Although sales are on the rise in the automotive market in Turkey, the same cannot be said for sales of electric vehicles. Because compared to petrol and diesel vehicles, electric sales are almost non-existent.

On the other hand, many countries seem to have already adopted electric vehicles. While China is the leader in sales; In Europe, countries like Norway, the Netherlands and Sweden are in the lead.

In Turkey, on the other hand, the high excise duty and the dollar exchange rate have driven electric vehicles to unattainable levels.
