Founded in 2007 by Özkan Derindere and Önder Yol, Derindere Motorlu Araçlar (DMA) seeks, through the use of the advanced technology that it has developed, to contribute to the emergence and growth in Turkey of the electric vehicles that are the future of the world.

Electric vehicles designed and built by DMA were introduced to market at a press conference held in February 2013. All of the electronic hardware and software that are the most important elements of these vehicles’ technology were fully developed inhouse by DMA’s own engineers.

Vehicles equipped with DMA technology are built at DMA’s own plant. Located in the Beylikdüzü district of Istanbul, the facility can turn out up to 1,000 vehicles a year.

DMA is set up as a Turkish company funded entirely by domestic capital.
DMA’s R&D activities are relocated to Turkey.
