President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan attended the test drive of the first locally manufactured autonomous electric bus at the Presidential Complex on February 1.
“We tested the world's first mass produced level-4 autonomous and electric bus, ATAK Electric, at the Complex today," announced President Erdoğan. “ATAK Electric, co-produced by KARSAN and ADASTEC, will be our pride at a time when clean energy consumption is taking precedence all over the world."
Powered by BMW Li-Ion batteries, Atak Electric accelerates up to 300 km without interruption. It can recharge its battery in 5 hours with AC and 3 hours with DC.
With export deals already sealed to Romania and the US, the co-manufacturers have started mass production of the bus.
