Made In Iran

Even with crippling sanctions the Persians are still churning out cars for their local market.

The Iran Khodro Company (IKCO), the largest carmaker in Iran, says mass production for its fully homemade car began early this year amid efforts to make the automotive industry in the country less vulnerable to foreign sanctions.

According to Press TV, the IKCO said the K132, a sedan based on its Samand model, will hit the markets in February as a first car that would rely up to 92.5 percent on Iranian suppliers for parts and designs.

The carmaker said a first version of the car would be equipped with an EC5 engine and a manual transmission while later models would be supplied with an automatic gearbox and a turbocharged engine.

It said other options on the manual K132 will include electric power steering, modern braking systems, two front-seat airbags and cruise control.

On fuel efficiency, the model would be equipped with Euro-5 emissions-control technology and its average consumption will be 6.7 liters per 100 kilometers, said the IKCO.

The K132 had been unveiled in a ceremony in February in the presence of President Hassan Rouhani in Tehran.

Its planned mass production will come despite the American sanctions that have caused problems for carmakers in Iran as they have struggled to access spare parts and technologies needed to finish a series of models jointly developed with Western companies.

However, homegrown efforts by the IKCO and Saipa, Iran’s second largest carmaker, have helped fill a void created by the sanctions as they have introduced new models to respond to a growing demand for modern and efficient cars in Iran.

This one can’t measure up to the BJ50…

Hii yetu pia ni swafi sana.

Iran is the most powerful country in the middle east. They resolve what to do and do what they resolve.

The great satan ashindwe…

More like a Iranian assembled car than a Iranian designed car. It runs off a Peugeot-Citroen chassis. The engine is a 1.6L cargo van engine produced by Peugeot. So it’s essentially a French car. I can say we were ahead of them. We had a Isuzu Uhuru designed in similar fashion in the 80s. 30 years ahead of them. It’s why I say Africa is the next frontier.

Iranians walikukosea wewe wapi kibinafsi? Tuchambue machungu yako. Ama ni ju america wanawachukia? Any country that stands up to US or west in general gets fcuked you know?

The great Satan ni America…

We can conclusively confirm that Iran is China and that China is Iran. Two superpowers supporting each other with shared ideals and enemies. One Belt One Road to connect them all.

They are not even hiding it any more. It is out in the open. China = shabaab = hezbollah = hamas = al qaeda = Iran.

Trump is out of the way.
