TEHRAN, Nov. 1 (Mehr News Agency) -- The first 'national engine' is going to be unveiled in an internal combustion engine conference by November 22. President Ahmadinejad will be the prominent figure in this gathering, Iranian Students News Agency (ISNA) reported on Tuesday.
The engine is being tested on a Samand car in Germany and is going through its final stage of testing. The results have so far been satisfactory. The 1.4 liter engine of this family, which is being designed jointly by Iran's Engine Research Center and FEV of Germany, is also recommended for SAIPA products.
The second engine is a dual-fuel turbocharged 1.7 liter that offers 112hp on gasoline, and by switching to gas, the power stands at 100hp. The third one is an engine of 1,400cc volume.
