Iran Khodro to mass-produce EF4 engines

Oct 19, 2011 12:00 AM

The Chief Executive Officer of Iran Khodro Co. (IKCO) says that the company will mass-produce EF4 engines and install them on Runna passenger cars by next Iranian calendar year (starting March 21).
“EF4 is a natural breathing engine with most parts in common with the 1700cc EF7 engine,” said Javad Najmeddin, according to IKCO.

Having started manufacturing EF4 prototypes two years ago, IKCO aims to produce 25,000 Runna passenger vehicles equipped with the new engines next year. With fuel efficiency being its most significant feature, EF4 is the only Iranian motor engine that meets Euro V quality requirements.
Pointing to the capabilities of IKCO engine shop and part makers, Najmeddin added that, “All the required casting and machining of EF4 parts have been accomplished by the Iranian industries and about 95 % of the parts are domestically developed.”

EF4 has been designed in two versions, using gasoline and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) as fuel, and is set to be mounted on Runna cars after passing durability tests.
IKCO was founded in 1962 and is currently regarded as the biggest automaker in the Middle East.
