Volvo FH16 to Enter Iran Market

Volvo Trucks plans to sell its FH16 heavy-duty truck in Iran that will be imported in collaboration with SAIPA Diesel company.
SAIPA Diesel deputy marketing manager Ahmad Heidari says, “Sales will be launched next March,” the local automotive website Donyaye Khodro reported.
The two companies are studying possible local assembly of the truck. Prices have not been announced.
The FH16 comes with Volvo’s strongest engine to date, the D16K, which produces up to 750 hp with 3,550 Nm. Matched by an I-Shift Crawl and Ultra Crawl system and a choice of fuel-efficient and strong rear axles, the model sets the benchmark for hard work and challenging missions.
SAIPA Diesel sells several other Volvo trucks including the FM 460 and FH13.
Volvo Trucks and SAIPA have a three-decade history of collaboration. Earlier in July, the two sides signed a deal under which 3,500 Volvo FH heavy vehicles will be assembled in the current fiscal that ends in March. As per the agreement, 5,000 trucks will be assembled next year.
The Gothenburg-based company’s president said last month Volvo will increase its investments in Iran. During a visit to Tehran, Claes Nilsson said, “So far Volvo Trucks has invested $55 million in Iran and this will increase significantly in the future.”
