The Iranian auto industry manufactured 96,765 vehicles in the third month of the current Iranian calendar year, (May 21-June 21) showing a 103.6 percent jump in comparison with the same period last year.
Iran has raised sedan output by 104.1 percent, hitting 80.144 from 39.465. The country produced 14.847 pickups, rising by 102.6 percent.
In April, the president of Iran and the Middle-East’s largest car manufacturing company, Iran-Khodro (IKCO), said his company was set to manufacture 600,000 passenger cars and pick-ups by March 2015.
“Iran-Khodro is supposed to improve its car making capabilities in a four-year plan; to achieve this it needs to present a new car with IKCO brand every other year,” Hashem Yeke Zare said.
“We are determined to export 30 percent of our products up to 2015,” emphasized the CEO.
