The longstanding debate over halting the production of poor quality cars in Iran has reached a tipping point with a clear deadline in sight, despite automakers bemoaning a lack of substitute for these models.
According to Nayereh Pirouzbakht, the head of the Institute of Standards and Industrial Research of Iran, the production of SAIPA’s small car Pride and Iran Khodro’s (IKCO) Peugeot 405 will be stopped as of June 2020 and license plates will not be issued for these vehicles, Mehr News Agency reported.
“The automakers are ordered to offer alternatives for the models or develop new cars that comply with standards,” Pirouzbakht added.
The plan is to gradually remove substandard vehicles from production lines, she said, adding that ISIRI will soon publish a progress report.
