Turkish company leveraging electric revolution
CDMMobil, a new generation electric utility vehicle producer, focuses on growth abroad as well as enhancing cooperation with large corporate companies and municipalities in Turkey. The company, which exports electric service vehicles to Australia and Germany, aims to go global with its Tragger brand. The company delivered a 100 percent electric waste transport vehicle to the Sydney Municipality in Australia in July and sent another vehicle to Germany for testing.
With 30 years of experience in design and engineering in the automotive sector, CDMMobil manufactures a new generation of electric utility vehicles for large corporate enterprises and municipalities ranging from hoteliers to logisticians, from airports to hospitals. The 100 percent electric Tragger Next Generation Service Vehicle consists of three different series: Professional, Logistics, and Transfer. The Transfer Series, which is used as a service vehicle in general purpose human transportation like parks, gardens, campuses and tourist facilities with its 2.4 and 6 seater versions, can also be used as an ambulance service, security, carriage of people from car parks and maintenance team vehicle for factories.
The latest product of this series, the T-Car, was introduced to the public for the first time at Teknofest in Istanbul last week. The Professional Series is preferred in areas such as waste water collection and garden-landscape maintenance, freight transport with open and closed boxes, garbage collection, scissor lifts, water or fuel tankers, firefighting and laddered maintenance vehicles. The Logistics Series is also used for tow truck purposes.
Saffet Cakmak, Co-Founder of CDMMobil, emphasized that the number of customers increased rapidly in Turkey and that they accelerated their marketing efforts abroad. “We want to serve the world with our environmentally-friendly, high-quality vehicles equipped with the latest technology,” he said. “We aim to be a global brand with our 100 percent domestic technology.” Sales abroad will be done through their companies in Germany, he added.
Cakmak noted that the T-Car, a transfer car the company has just released, has drawn considerable interest in the market. “We especially expect interest from tourism towns and hotels for T-Car vehicles. We are in contact with Antalya and Bodrum municipalities,” he said. Cakmak also underlined that the T-Car is 30 percent more affordable than imported versions.
