Iran Khodro has unveiled the DongFeng S30 as part of a push to broaden its space in the taxi fleet.

The model, showcased during the Tehran Auto Show, will be offered only as taxis with no option for private use, the local auto website Khodro Nevis reported.

The S30 comes with a Taxi meter, GPS, and automated dispatch system and is equipped with point-of-sale (POS) devices, and remote diagnostic system for taxi fleet owners.

According to China Auto Web, the car has a combined fuel consumption of 5.7 liters per 100 kilometers, and emissions meet Euro4 standards.

The cabs will also offer free Internet access to passengers, according to images of the new car. It is set to compete with SAIPA’s locally produced Ario (Zotye Z300) which is already popular with taxi companies since its release in 2016.

The DongFeng S30 will be priced at 450 million rials ($11,842) falling in the same price range as Ario which is priced 470 million rials ($12,368).
