The authoritative domestic automobile publication “Za Rulem” spoke about the prospects for entering the domestic market of cars of Iranian brands Iran Khodro (IKCO) and Saipa.
The first to come to us is the IKCO Tara sedan, equipped with a 1.6-liter engine with 115 hp. and a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. The equipment of the model includes four airbags, cruise control, a rear view camera and a media system with a 7-inch display. The estimated price of IKCO Tara is 1,500,000 rubles.
The second Iranian car for Russia should be the Saipa Shahin sedan, built on a licensed Toyota XP90 chassis, which is used, for example, in the old second-generation Yaris, produced until 2013. Here is a 1.5-liter engine with 112 hp. and only a mechanical, five-speed box. The price of such a car in Russia should start at 1,200,000 rubles. Meanwhile, Xiaomi has released an electronic notepad with a stylus for just 460 rubles, and Vologda-based mobile game developer Playrix is leaving Russia.
