Global competitors either do not offer coverage on Turkey or provide little to none information that is hardly accurate and updated. As Local Competitor “BenzinLitre” provide information mainly for fossil fuel stations (Gasoline, Disel, NG) which is not acceptale for EV drivers as a member of green comminity & “Car4Future” main focus point is transfer energy between EVs. They want to expand their business to charging stations but as global competitors they provide little to none information.

Comment
In the short run, my expectation is to connect with relevant people and find investment to realize my idea, which is in its infancy but already has great potential. In the long run, however, our aim is to speed up the development of EV technologies especially in Turkey, while making them much easier to reach, and eventually to contribute to society by helping the birth of a greener community in Turkey leaving a much habitable environment to next generations.
