Iran Khodro Diesel is now set to produce a six-ton truck name Arna in the near future, as part of a long-awaited deal with Germany’s Mercedes-Benz.
Speaking on the sidelines of the 13th International Exhibition of Public Transportation and Civilian Services, Gholamreza Razzazi, IKD’s chief executive officer, added that his company and Mercedes-Benz have held talks on ways to expand future cooperation, IKCO Press reports.
Razzazi noted that based on the agreements signed between the two sides, Iran Khodro Diesel is set to produce a new generation of Actros trucks next year.
“We are increasing our cooperation with Mercedes Benz,” he said, adding that IKD is expected to include some of the products of Mercedes Benz in its portfolio in the near future.
Razzazi also noted that IKD and Mercedes Benz have already reached an agreement to use the new series of engine 900 in Arna Truck. He said preliminary quality tests have already begun.
“Compared with other similar engines, the new 900 engines enjoy a higher standard in terms of quality and power. They are set to be produced by the IDEM company in the near future. We have decided to use them in Arian Minibus as well,” he said.
