TEHRAN - The Ministry of Industry, Mines and Trade will pay 10 trillion rials (some $815 million) to Iran’s two major carmakers to help them resolve their financial problems.
 
The ISNA News agency quoted Industry, Mine and Trade Minister Mehdi Ghazanfari as saying that the two carmakers (Iran Khodro and Saipa) are struggling to pay their debts to domestic part makers.
 
Iran’s car output in the first four months of the this year, which began on March 20, fell by 37.4 percent compared to the same period last year.
 
Iran plans to manufacture at least three million cars by 2025 and export some one million, the Fars News Agency quoted Ghazanfari as saying on June 16.
 
“Some 1.6 million cars were manufactured last year and 55,000 cars were exported,” Ghazanfari said.

^ Nothing unexpected at all. When even the largest and most successful auto manufacturers of the world were going under and needed state bailout, Iran went about privatizing its own auto industry. Leaving ideology aside (like how I consider privatization of public property to be theft) one needed only to skim through some financial reports of the industry to realize the foolishness of the privatization.

Some of you cats were saying privatization would make it more efficient. How wrong you were lol

Iran's second brand car welcomed in Middle-East, North Africa


  From Fars News AgencySeptember 12, 2012

Fars News Agency (Tehran) - Runna, the second brand sedan of Iran's largest carmaker Iran-Khodro Company (IKCO), was widely welcomed by drivers in the Middle East and North Africa.

A market research by IKCO export and international affairs said that the quality, safety and reasonable price of Runna has drawn the attention of people in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria and Libya.

Elegant design, wide variety of accessories and fuel efficiency have drawn the attention of the people in these countries.

IKCO has started initial measures to export this sedan to the Middle Eastern countries.

Based on the export oriented approach of IKCO management, the company aims to develop its presence in global target markets.

According to IKCO's Chief Executive Officer Najmeddin, the company has exported cars to 30 countries, mainly to Central Asia, the Middle East, Europe, South America, and Africa.

The company has recently received orders for its newly self-developed car, Runna, from different countries.

The CEO stated that the company supplies spare parts and provides after-sales service to its customers through 139 dealers in 27 countries.

Iraq is one of IKCO's main target markets in the Middle East. IKCO is currently running a production plant in this country. Production capacity of IKCO plant in Iraq is 30 thousand cars a year.

Hopefully Runa will come under mass production in August 2012.

Nevertheless the iranian car industrie is unfortunally faced with many problems because of the sanctions which led to a significant decrease in its production.

Iran July 2012: Iran Khodro Runna #10 in contracting market

As usual we explore local production figures for the Iranian market as sales data is not available, however this should represent a relatively accurate picture of car sales in the country as high import duties and the weakness of the local currency limits sales of other vehicles. 2012 is shaping up to be a pretty eventful year for car sales in Iran. First Peugeot announced it would be progressively withdrawing from the market, now Saipa halves its production as a reaction to the government’s setting of prices for domestic cars, judged too low in the wake of the sharp devaluation of the Iranian rial vs. the US dollar…

As a result, only 69,797 cars were produced during the month of Tir 1391, roughly equivalent to July 2012 in the Iranian calendar, a 43% year-on-year fall. Year-to-date after 4 months of the year 1391, the Iranian industry is down 39% to 278,578 units. The Saipa Pride is still the favourite model in Iran but with only 24,001 units produced this month it is down a massive 57% year-on-year and 48% year-to-date at 107,448. In fact the entire Top 6 most produced models is unchanged vs. June but the y-o-y variations are strikingly different.

The Peugeot 405 stays #2 but has now started to fall at -10% to 12,762 units, ahead of the Iran Khodro Samand down 20%, the Renault Tondar 90 (aka Dacia Logan) down 7%, the Peugeot Pars down 16% and the Peugeot 206 down 51% to 4,482. Only the Renault Megane bucks the trend, up 91% to 1,854 unit this month. The other Saipa model, the Tiba, falls even harder than the Pride at -68% to #9.


There is a newcomer in the Top 10 this month: 3 long years after its original presentation, the Iran Khodro Runna, based on a Peugeot 206 sedan, has started to gear up its production albeit very very slowly: from 57 units produced at #15 in June, it is now up to 103 at #10… Still a long way to go. For its part the Great Wall Voleex C30 is down 4 spots to #15 with 60 units.

Nice and sleek styling with sufficiently good interior. Is there a luxury model in production of this model?

Imports of luxury cars into Iran up 30%

Source: Tehran Times

Over 15,750 luxury cars, worth around $341 million, have been imported into Iran during the first five months of the current Iranian year, which began on March 20, showing some 30 percent rise year on year.


Luxury cars in streets of Tehran

The average price of each car was $21,648, the ISNA news agency reported.

The cars were mainly imported from the UAE, South Korea, and Oman.

Wealthy Iranians are fuelling an unprecedented luxury car boom despite sanctions hurting their economy, paying up to $360,000 for high-end autos, AFP reported in April.

Iran's automobile market is highly protected against imports, allowing in only 40,000 vehicles last year, despite steadily growing demand mostly met through domestic production of some 1.6 million cars per year.

There are now an estimated 14 million vehicles on Iran's roads, more than double the six million registered in 2005.

While people struggle everyday to afford food and feed their families elites parade their "trophies". This is a worldwide phenomenon.

RUNNA was pre ordered some months ago in spring. On that time it is said price of it is less than 15 millions Toman (6000 USD , now each dollar equals around 2500 Toman) but I guess it will be sold with higher prices. but surely its price is much more attractive than 206.

Low price of it in USD is due to increase of value of Dollar against Toman. At least this is good for exporters.

You hit the nail on the head. Before the "Euro Circus" countries like France and Italy had an industrial economic policy based on the competitive disinflation. Now that their hands are tied, Germany is eating them all up therefore inducing a collapse in their economies. The Chinese currency is also undervalued making Chinese products more competitive.
The export markets are very important and Iran should boost its exports, especially products integrating high added value.

I don't know about the model in the photo, but the older models were and still are the most city pulutents in Iran. They all must be scrapped from Iran. They do more damage than any other vehicles in Iran today!

I guess they have managed to replace the engine. The old Mercedes diesels were indeed noisy and polluting a lot. Last time I was on my way to northern Iran I saw these amazingly oldies, Mercedes buses together with those die hard Leyland and Mack trucks that you see nowhere else.
