King Abdullah launches first Saudi-made car
by Elsa Baxter on Tuesday, 15 June 2010
Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah has unveiled the first ever car to be entirely produced and built in the kingdom, local media reports on Tuesday.

The SUV, called Ghazal 1, was built by engineers at King Saud University (KSU) in Riyadh and is designed specifically for the Gulf climate.

Ghazal 1, named after a desert deer, was developed over the last two years in collaboration with several major companies, like Motorola, Mercedes and Magna Canada, Arab News reports.

"This car is designed for use on all roads and terrain, even in difficult conditions, while the car interior is designed to provide comfort for passengers," Professor Said Darwish of KSU's industrial engineering department, told the paper.

Saudi has aspirations of launching an automotive manufacturing sector as officials look to diversify the economy away from its traditional oil reliance.

Darwish told the paper there are plans to produce 20,000 of the cars annually.

A good effort by them but they could have made much better out of it. This SUV looks more like an incomplete prototype vehicle and hey, where are the headlamps? Is that grayish thing even functional? Also, what are the specifications by the way?

Not looking very bad but the headlamp concept is something new!

if the wheel is present inside, most probably it is, then the wheel will be lifted along with the hatch. notice the curve at the bottom of the hatch.

The wheel does appear to be fixed inside, and it’ll be accessible from inside the door.
