Local vehicle manufacturer SAIPA Diesel is set to introduce a new Volvo truck in the Iranian market.

The company will unveil Volvo FM 460, which is fabled as “the most eco-friendly and versatile” heavy duty vehicle of the Swedish company, local automotive website Khodro Nevis reported.

According to the producer, I-Shift transmission system of the truck decreases fuel consumption by 5%.

The vehicle will be on show during the four-day Tabriz Motor Show to open over the coming weekend in the northwestern city.

SAIPA Diesel has been producing several models of Volvo heavy-duty vehicles in recent years. Production of the FM series was halted five years ago.

Earlier reports said the D13C model will be assembled by SAIPA Diesel. It has a 12.8-liter engine and a power output between 460ph.
