On December 8, Kamaz announced that it has participated in the “Eurasia Expo-2023” in Tehran, Iran. Kamaz presented the KAMAZ-54901 truck tractor, designed for high-speed long-haul transportation. It is equipped with a 12.9-liter KAMAZ-910.50-560 engine which generates 560 hp power and 2600 Nm torque. The engine is mated to a 12-speed automatic transmission.
Kamaz expects that truck sales volumes in Iran will increase significantly, primarily due to the launch of the KAMAZ-54901 vehicle. It expects that there will be demand for the newest K5 truck line.
Considering the current political realities and the dynamic development of the North-South transport corridor, this export direction has become even more significant and a priority for Kamaz. It is already actively working to obtain European-style certificates in Russia with the completion of its subsequent certification in Iran.
In addition, a portfolio of orders is being discussed as part of a project to equip the Iranian part of the International Transport Corridor “North-South” with vehicles.
