Personally, i think the new samand soren is the most beautiful, you can see a picture of it in blue above.

The award for the most ugly goes to the paykan pickup, why do they make these cars? http://www.ikco.com/Products/Fa/ShowMovie.aspx?ModelID=Zu2FAnCzz3E=&AttachmentID=aOTyFR02gQ0=

Am I right in saying that Iran has only two automotive manufacturers (Iran Khodro and Saipa), both of which are under the "supervision" of IDRO?

Kibolo:

Iran has two major automotive manufacturers. However, there are many more smaller ones either assembling or have their own unique products. Kerman Khodro, Bahman Group, Kish Khodro, Raniran, Traktorsazi, Shahab Khodro and Moratab Auto manufacturers are others to name.

Iran's No. 1 Car-Manufacturing Company to Offer 3 New Products Each Year

TEHRAN (FNA)- Head of the Middle-East's largest auto-manufacturing company, Iran Khodro (IKCO) announced that the company is scheduled to unveil three new products each year.
Presenting three new products and two diversified models for each year is a part of IKCO's agenda," Javad Najmeddin said, explaining the company's eight-month performance in the current Iranian year (ends March 20) as well as plans for the years ahead.

Referring to Soren ELX and Samand SE introduction to the market by the end of the Iranian year, Najmeddin added, "Peugeot 207i will be unveiled in manual and automatic versions in the current year and the production capacity of this car will be five thousand units per annum."

"New Pars LX and ELX, with boosted safety and comfort features and lower fuel consumption in comparison with its basic model, will hit domestic and foreign markets soon," he continued.

Najmeddin further pointed to the increase in the production and sales of the company as well as plans to introduce new products while boosting quality, and said, "IKCO's market share in terms of both value and volume increased from 45.4% and 52.7% in the last year to 51.4% and 59% in November this year, respectively."

IKCO has produced three million vehicles in the past six years alone, which is equivalent to its total production over the previous 36 years.

Iran-Khodro to Unveil Middle-East's First Hybrid Bus

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's largest car and truck-manufacturing company, Iran-Khodro, is due to unveil the first hybrid bus of the Middle-East in the next 3 months, a company official announced on Sunday.
 
Hybrid Bus project manager Mohsen Isfahanian said that related tests on parts have already been carried out and that the hybrid bus will undergo the final testing in the near future.

"The hybrid system designed in this project was installed on one of Iran-Khodro Diesel Co. (IKD) city buses. The related tests regarding parts have been done and we are going to perform the vehicle test soon," Isfahani stated.

The 4-year project was a collaborative effort by Iran-Khodro Industrial Group, Tehran University, Isfahan University and Iran's Fuel Conservation Company (IFCO).

Isfahanian further said that the new product has lessened fuel consumption and also pollution by 30 to 40 percent.

Hybrid cars address problems of high fuel prices and consumption and the greenhouse effect, and thus, many countries tend toward using hybrid buses in their urban transportation system.

Commenting on the features of the newly developed hybrid engine, the project manager noted, "The electric engine is capable of moving the bus independently. The regenerative engines connected to the wheels make it possible to convert the energy created by the breaks to charge the batteries."

"Another way of charging is to plug in the batteries while the bus is parked," he noted.

this is an interesting development indeed because when iran states that it's making a hybrid, it usually means it's combing Gaseous fuel and the traditional gasoline, but now we have electricity.

Iran for sure needs to get every car in Iran transformed to LPG and keep on building more LPG stations. If we get sanctioned on the benzine, we can simply stop selling it to the people... everyone can user LPG instead.

Anyone have any news on how far we're with the transformation?

Iranian Co. Achieves Powertrain Production Know-how

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's largest car and truck-manufacturing company, Iran-Khodro Co. (IKCO), announced that it has achieved the technical know-how required for designing and producing different versions of automotive powertrains.
IKCO's most modern cylinder block and cylinder head machining equipment has put an end to (the country's) dependence on foreign companies," Iran-Khodro Company Deputy Chief Executive (CEO) for Powertrain Ali Sheikhzadeh said.

The technology enables the company to achieve self-sufficiency in manufacturing its engines without foreign aid.

In a motor vehicle, the term powertrain or powerplant refers to the group of components that generate power and deliver it to the road surface, water, or air. This includes the engine, transmission, driveshaft, differentials and the final drive (drive wheels).

Sometimes "powertrain" is used to refer to simply the engine and transmission, including the other components only if they are integral to the transmission.

"As scheduled, we will supply the powertrain needed for 680 thousand vehicles by the end of the current Iranian calendar year (ends on March 20)," Sheikhzadeh said, adding, "We can fully cover the next year program of 800 thousand sets of products."

He further noted that the car-manufacturing company is preparing the required procedures for the production of diesel powertrain for passenger cars, scheduled to be mass produced by 2011.

Last month, Iran-Khodro unveiled the first Iranian-made diesel engine to be used in cars.

The new diesel engine is a hi-tech machine which consumes 5 liters per 100 kilometers in combined cycle and is predicted to cost less than $1,000 when mass produced.

The striking engine has achieved emission standard of Euro 5, featuring a Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) as well as a new Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR).

Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) eliminate the diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine. The Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) is a nitrogen oxide emissions reduction technique to lower exhaust emissions.

Not only does fiat make awful cars... the owner is said to have ordered the assasination of his own son because he became a Muslim. The son did everything to get over to Iran, but he was killed before that unfortunately.

I doubt that rumor  though. Even the most liberal western parents would still prefer their child to turn to Islam rather than to homosexuality... however politically incorrect that may be. Anyhow, I'm not a parent myself but i have a hard time believing someone would kill their own son due to such a rather trivial thing.

I have no issue believing it. They claim he committed suicide. Which is ridiculous. Anyway, its been a long time and I forgot a lot about it. However he died in a range way from a bridge or something, they claimed he committed suicide. It all fits well with the elitist attitude of these billionaire families.

Technical failure in Iran cars claim 3,000 lives
Wed, 30 Dec 2009 13:37:15 GMT
 
More than 3,000 people have been killed on roads across Iran every year due to technical failure in vehicles, says Traffic Police Commander Colonel Alireza Esmaeili.

"According to the Iranian police experts' reports, technical failure in cars is the cause of 13 percent of the country's fatal road accidents," Esmaeili told Mehr news agency on Tuesday.

The senior police commander also criticized the quality of vehicles manufactured in Iran.

"Home-made cars lack quality and safety. They are also very expensive. It's because the Iranian car companies are governmental," he further explained.

"The giant automakers in the world are using electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), while we are still discussing anti-lock braking system (ABS) in Iran," he noted.

According to Esmaeili, all the Iranian carmakers would go bankrupt, if tariffs on imported vehicle were to be cut.

A total of 23,000 Iranians have died and 280,000 others injured in 800,000 car accidents across the country over the past year.

“Following the strategy of reducing fuel consumption, IKCO will allocate 50 percent of its production capacity to low consumption engines in the next year,” said IKCO Deputy Chief Executive (CEO) for Powertrain, Ali Sheikhzadeh.

“Producing this number of low consumption engines can
be considered a leap forward in enjoying the EF7 and TU5 engines on IKCO products,” he added.

Sheikhzadeh says the launch of an economy engine production line with the capacity of 1,000 units a day will lead IKCO toward the goal of replacing high consumption engines with those with lower consumption rates.

Iran-Khodro to Boost Global Sales

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's largest auto-manufacturing company, Iran-Khodro, announced that it plans to boost exports this year as part of its broader plans for hiking global sales.

"Expanding the new markets, specially in West Europe, increasing the existing market share and bringing more diversity to the portfolio of products are IKCO's solutions to maintain its competitive advantages in the market," IKCO's Deputy CEO for Exports Ali Reza Feizbakhsh announced.

The company has been able to export over 32,000 vehicles to more than 20 countries all across the world despite the current global economic crisis, he said.

"Exports to Africa in 2010 are certain and Nigeria will receive the first shipment of Samand this year," the official added, elaborating on the company's exports plans.

Feizbakhsh also stated that the company is eying export of 40,000 sets of cars this year.

The thirty percent growth in IKCO's global sales network has brought the title of Iran's 2009 top exporter to the company. Samand, Soren, Peugeot 405 and ROA are among the products exported by the company.

Iran's state-owned Iran Khodro is the largest carmaker in the Middle East, Central Asia and North Africa, with an annual production of more than one million vehicles of various models, including cars, trucks, minibuses and buses.

IKCO is also ramping up exports as it builds a global presence outside Iran.

Regional markets and the neighboring countries, including Iraq, Syria, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, the CIS countries as well as Bulgaria, Switzerland, Eastern Europe and Turkey, are the main customers of the company.

IKCO in the past two years has also begun kit assemblies in Azerbaijan, Belarus, Venezuela and Argentina, with plans to add assembly in Egypt, Vietnam and China in the next year or two.

The vehicle of choice for most of these local assembly operations is Samand, a compact sedan based heavily on the Peugeot 405 platform and with the price starting at about $9,000. "Samand" is the Persian name for a local breed of horse.

Market observers believe that Samand could challenge future Chinese and Indian imports at the low end of the market.

Samand trade name is now registered at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).

Iran-Khodro group, owner of Samand, is the first Iranian company whose product is registered at the WIPO.

Soleimani estimated that industrialization of 207i requires $1 million of investment, and stated, "The French Peugeot Company has agreed that in case localization of the new spare parts (needed for this vehicle) proves economical, it will provide 50 percent of the financial resource required for casts at IKCO's demand."

"Peugeot 207i would be produced in two series of manual and automatic," he underlined, and added, "Should the production prove economical, Peugeot will undertake its global sales from Iran."

Soleimani finally added that 207i would be produced in both hatchback and sedan models.

207i named 206 Plus is currently being produced in Brazil, Argentina and China and Iran would be the fourth producer of this car.

In November, IKCO Director Javad Najmeddin said that the company had signed an agreement with the French automaker to produce the Peugeot 207 cars at IKCO's facilities for export.

"An agreement has been signed with the French carmaker to build the Peugeot 207i car in Hatchback and Sedan models," he said.

According to Najmeddin, the produced cars will be exported to 63 countries, mainly to Russia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Belarus and Serbia, as well as Central Asian, Northern African and Persian Gulf countries.

Iran-Khodro is the largest Iranian automaker, having an average share of 65 percent of the domestic vehicle production.
