Referring to car production as a goal to supply both domestic and international markets, Keyvan Vaziri, IKCO Deputy CEO Assistant in New Product Development said, “The production target for the car based on the “X409TC” project will be 100,000 units per year.”
“The car has already been designed, and the body stamping dies are prepared; mass production of the car (which will be the 4th IKCO car) will start by February 2017,” he asserted.
According to Vaziri, the main export markets for this car will primarily be the CIS and Persian Gulf countries, Azerbaijan and Armenia.
In the meantime, he claimed that this car meets all the required safety, pollution, fuel consumption and quality standards, and also covers Europe’s compulsory safety standards.
“The sunroof has a new style and appearance, designed by IKCO engineers. It enjoys a turbocharged engine and an automatic gearbox,” he said and added, “Considering safety and performance criteria, this car is being tested under the supervision of IKCO NPD in Spain, Germany and South Korea.”
Vaziri also emphasized that this new IKCO product, to be produced this year, could compete with some Korean and even European cars.
