Iran’s major automaker SAIPA and Sharif University of Technology have started collaboration to design and develop electric vehicles.
Late last week, SAIPA’s CEO Seyyed Javad Soleimani conferred with Mahmoud Fotouhi, the university’s chancellor, in a videoconference and signed a deal to help prepare the ground for the presence of EVs in the country for the first time, the automaker’s website reported. 
Based on the deal, a joint taskforce will be set up to devise projects on designing EV prototypes and conducting tests.
In addition, SAIPA committed to tap the potential of university graduates and academia as project advisors. The company will also organize training courses for the elite university students and graduates, giving them an opportunity to work with senior professionals in the production, engineering and management divisions of SAIPA.
