The Right-Hand-Drive Samand

There are about 2.5 billion people living in the Right-Hand-Driving countries. So IKCO started to investigate on this market. Thus we in R&D center made 2 prototypes of RHD Samand, which was a perfect experiment and in some countries such as Pakistan, Bangladesh and India they find some interests and customers.

I was the project manager of one of these prototypes which was Bi-fuel (GAS and CNG). This car was made in less than 1 month and sent for the Pakistan Exhibition.

Also preparing the FS (Feasibility study) documents and negotiating with some Chinese companies were my other roles in that project.

This is a short list of differences of LHD and RHD SAmand that had to be done in that project:

  • Dashboard
  • Glove box
  • Dashbord beam assembly
  • 15 body parts (fire-wall and ...)
  • Steering column
  • Fire wall sound deadening
  • Carpet
  • Front seats
  • Haedliner
  • Door covers
  • Center console
  • Wiper blades and wiper mechanism
  • Gas pedal system
  • Clutch system
