IRIS from Wallys

From Tunis with love, low-cost crossover IRIS

Last Updated: April 10, 2021By Tags: ,

Vehicle of leisure and daily use, the IRIS conceals under its design and its urban manners, an authentic character.

The starting price of Iris is at the level of about 13 thousand US dollars, or a little more than 10,900 euros, which has crystallized as one of the most affordable offers. In a country where the majority of the population can hardly set aside enough money to buy second-hand cars, this is no small matter, Business Insider reported.

The panels that make up the bodywork were manufactured in Africa, but other components and vital assemblies were imported from France.

WALLYS abounds with well-thought ideas, like its PSA Powertrain EB2 engine which has the ability to reduce everything: size, emissions, and fuel consumption while improving performance and bringing incredible driving pleasure. Moreover, its fiberglass bodywork is no shortage of advantages. The bodywork and the galvanized chassis are both guaranteed 3 years.

Iris is designed to be the safest vehicle in its category.  The low center of gravity, rigid body structure and large crumple zones provide unparalleled protection.

How they do it, make the IRIS?

The material used to make the Iris body is not expensive, but each panel must be sandblasted by hand. More than half of the retail price of the Iris is spent on the purchase of a three-cylinder engine of the PSA group with the designation 1.2 PureTech. That unit develops 83 horsepower and costs seven thousand US dollars. The three-door African crossover develops a speed of 158 kilometers per hour while accelerating to 100 km / h in a little less than 13.5 seconds.

The offer of Iris envisages a relatively wide selection of options that can increase the price up to as much as 21 thousand US dollars. The list also includes LED lighting for the headlights, protection on the front bumper, panoramic glass roof, camera for reviewing events behind the vehicle, towing hook, and the like. In addition, a wide range of body colors is provided, so the list of accessories now includes ten different shades, including light orange, purple, and some more that you can see in the attached photos.

The passenger compartment can be equipped with a touch screen and music system if desired. A device that allows legal use of the phone while driving has also been incorporated, along with a section for wireless charging of a smart device. There is also a fire extinguisher. Wallys also offers better sound insulation, a simple steering wheel rim, as well as more comfortable leather-covered seats. Everything listed is paid extra.
