We announced the major phase of the previously announced TL 20.5 billion investment plan until 2026, for the next-generation electric and connected commercial vehicle projects in Kocaeli Plants with its mission to lead the electric transformation of the automotive industry.
We will produce the first all-electric version of Ford Transit, the world’s most commercial vehicle model, in our Gölcük plants. As Ford Otosan, we took the production responsibility of the all-electric commercial vehicle with most powerful motor to be sold in Europe.
During Covid-19 pandemic, our priority as Ford Otosan has been to create optimum conditions in which each individual of our company, our suppliers and business partners can feel good as we ensure their health and safety. For this purpose, we have brought together the measures we have taken and the practices we have done in our work areas under the title of COVID-19 Pandemic Management Guide.

As Ford Otosan, we continue our work using our entire ecosystem, including our competencies and manufacturers, as a part of the fight against COVID19. We took action in a very short period of time, especially when it comes to the production of medical equipment that will benefit the community. We have worked for the production of face masks, visors and aerosol boxes for the safety of health workers who play a critical role in Turkey's fight against coronavirus.
At Ford Otosan, we continue our transformation journey for a sustainable future in every field. In our 2019 Sustainability Report, we shared our projects that we have accomplished by focusing on in-house entrepreneurship and society, especially implementations that increase our competitive power and productivity worldwide.
Our Ford Trucks brand, continuing to grow both abroad and domestically with our ‘2019 International Truck of the year’ award-winning F-MAX, has achieved its goals in the first 9 months of 2020 despite the effects of pandemic.
Our new model Ford Puma, the newest member of the Ford SUV world, appeals to stylish, confident and attention-styling users; with its remarkable design, technology and the options that make life easier, it excites those who want to experience the future from today.
