The engineering level of commercial vehicle engines in Korea has recently reached at the stage of designing and developing process for the major parts as a result of the government's policy and guidance for promotion of engineering development and tighter control of air pollution.
The production capacity of commercial vehicle engines was about 150,000 units and the actual production was 106,000 units at the end of 1984. The rate of diesel engine production was about 90% from actual production result.
