Iran Khodro Powertrain Co. (IPCO) has finished designing and developing parts and components for the Runna hybrid.
The Runna will be ideal for crowded, polluted cities such as Tehran. It has a small, “made in Iran” combustion engine and is available in three- and four-cylinder variants. The Runna will be powered by a type of hybrid system that combines a conventional internal combustion engine with an electric propulsion system. The electric motor can move the car between 70 and 80 kilometers (approximately 43 to 50 miles) on a single charge and allow the Runna to reach a top speed of 120 kilometers per hour (approximately 75 miles per hour). The hybrid Runna powertrain could be ideal for urban traffic and might even be suitable for Iran’s public transportation system.
