TEHRAN (ISNA)- The 4th IKCO brand car is going to enter the market by the end of this Iranian year, i.e. Mach 20, 2017.

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 to be produced based on “X409TC” project will be 100,000 sets annually.”

“The car is already designed and the body stamping dies are prepared; the mass production for this car which would 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 standard.
