- PRESS RELEASE
Based on its strategic plan in powertrain development, IKCO will improve EF7, TU5 and EF4 engines technology to Euro IV and V standards and the average fuel economy of products to less than seven liters by 2014.
Najmeddin referred to hybrid engines as an effective strategy to increase cars' fuel economy and underscored that hybrids play an important role in boosting up fuel efficiency and lowering cars' emission. He finally stated that hybrid Samand would hit the market by the end of this year.
Boosting powertrain technology is considered as one of IKCO strategies for fuel efficiency. Fully localization of engine parts and increasing the production of EF7, TU5 and IKCO EF4 1400cc engines as well as improving their technologies by 2016 play important roles in IKCO strategic plans.
In order to upgrade standard emission compatibility to Euro IV and V and reduce fuel consumption of products to an average of 7 liters per 100km, IKCO focuses on improving the current technology in EF7, TU5 and TU4 engines.
Designing and developing national diesel engines for the existing and future vehicles as well as compatibility with Euro IV, V and VI have been closely focused on in this plan.
In order to outfit IKCO new platforms with average fuel consumption engines (below 5 liters per 100km), two gasoline and two diesel engines that meet Euro V and VI emission standard requirements will be designed.
