Turkey's President Gifts Electric Car to Qatar’s Sheikh Tamim

In a meeting held on Tuesday between the two presidents, Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan gifted an electric Turkish car to Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim during his visit to Doha.

The electric car was designed in Turkey and given to Qatar’s royal family while Mr. Erdogan was visiting the country as part of his three-day Gulf tour.

The two presidents took a ride with Sheikh Tamim driving the car to test the Togg, Turkey’s first EV brand. They drove around the courtyard at Lusail Palace.

Mr. Erdogan gave Qatar’s Emir the gift after he visited Saudi Arabia and gifted Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman another electric car.

On Tuesday, Mr. Erdogan held talks with Sheikh Tamim on matters that are relayed to politics and the economy as he tries to shore up Gulf support for Turkey, which is facing a financial crisis.

“During the talks, all aspects of bilateral relations were reviewed and steps to enhance cooperation in various areas, particularly the economy, were discussed,” stated Turkey's news agency Anadolu.
