According to a report by Economic Times, Turkey is projected to have 2.5 million electric cars in 2030 said a report by Shura Energy Transition Center.

Five types of charging options considered
The report is titled, “Transport sector transformation: Integrating electric vehicles into Turkey’s distribution grids.” The report also mentioned that to charge these vehicles, five types of charging options that can differentiate between home, workplace and public charging have been considered at alternate (AC) and direct current (DC) levels.
Real grid data
The report also said that that a total of one million charging points have been assumed and up to 25,000 of these are DC level fast chargers. To estimate the distribution grid impact between 2018 and 2030, an hourly resolution distribution grid model has been developed. This has been done based on real grid data that represent Aegean, Central Anatolia, Marmara and Mediterranean regions of Turkey.
As per the report, the passenger vehicle ownership rate figure is expected to rise to 300 vehicles per 1,000 people by 2030. The population of Turkey is expected to exceed 90 million by 2030 from 81 million in 2018.
