Iran is preparing to release an inexpensive sedan on the PSA platform

September 22, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

We are talking about a small sedan K132, which will be released by the Iranian brand Iran Khodro (IKCO). The future novelty was presented to local authorities in the winter of this year. Now the official images of the sedan have hit the Web.

Concern Iran Khodro in the very near future is going to put on the conveyor its new model K132. Before launching new items, the company decided to declassify its design.

Recall that this particular model was once awarded the very honorary title of “the Iranian car itself” – foreign auto components were used here to a minimum. 92.5% (locally produced parts) versus 7.5% imported.

At the same time, it is emphasized that the sedan was developed by Iran Khodro. However, we remember that back in 2019, the Iranian company acquired a license from PSA Peugeot-Citroen for the production of a platform from the Peugeot 301 / Citroen C-Elysee sedans. The new sedan is based on it. With the aforementioned models, the K132 is unified in terms of the chassis and the supporting body frame. But the outer panels are original here.

In length, the Iranian sedan reaches 4,505 mm with a wheelbase of 2,652 mm, and its width and height are 1,748 and 1,466 mm.

Under the hood of the car there will be a 110-horsepower 1.6-liter gasoline engine working in conjunction with a 5MKPP or 6AKPP. The power unit complies with Euro-5 standards. Production of commercial sedans will begin in October. IKCO K132 sedan prices start at 12 thousand dollars

Meanwhile, BMW has presented an extended version of the 5 Series 2021 sedan. This car receives the prefix Li and is intended mainly for the “heavenly” car market. Recall that in China, popular models with an extended wheelbase are in good demand.
