TEHRAN, Aug. 4 (Mehr News Agency) - A new model of Samand, Iran's first passenger car achieving Euro III emission standard, rolled off the assembly line, the Persian service of Fars News Agency said.
Aside from reducing its exhaust gas pollutants, the fuel consumption of the sedan has also been cut, noted on Thursday, an official with Iran's major auto producer, Iran Khodro Co. (IKCO).
As a result of the modifications made to the new models of Samand, particularly its Engine Management System (EMS), the engine performance has been significantly enhanced.
Better drive ability, knock reduction and improvement in the engine's power output are cited as other changes made to the earlier model, he added.
