According to her, Turkey is famous for the buses and tools produced there, the country that houses some of the largest European factories.
Kanca said that Volkswagen would agree to produce minibuses at the Ford Otosan plant where the Ford Transit model was built. Ford Otosan is a holding company between Ford and Koç Holding, one of Turkey's largest exporters. Volkswagen and Ford said last year that they would work to share production at some sites to save money.
Kanca says that businessmen in Tucia have a good perception of the country and if Volkswagen starts production on assembly lines at Ford Otosan in Kocaeli province, it will improve the perception of many Germans over Turkey. "We have to bring a German car factory to Turkey".
Ford produced 440,000 commercial vehicles in Turkey in 2017, as well as 75,000 engines, being the largest service provider in the market.
In Turkey, over 550,000 commercial vehicles and 1.1 million cars were produced in 2017. For comparison, in 2009, 350,000 commercial vehicles and 510,000 cars were produced.
