Iran’s automotive output increased by 21% during the first five months of the current Iranian year (March 20-Aug. 21) compared to the year-ago period.
According to data released by the Industries Ministry, a total of 377,000 cars and commercial vehicles were produced in Iran during the five months, which figure was 311,330 year-on-year. 
The output of passenger cars saw an 18.4% rise, reaching 344,800 units and the number of pickup trucks reached 31,528, which is 38.4% higher than the 19,500 produced in the same period of last year.
The production rates for vans, buses and minibuses show a 5.9% decrease in output, dropping to 673 units.
Saeed Zarandi, a deputy industries minister, says automakers plan to produce up to 1.2 million vehicles by the current Iranian yearend (March 2021). 
Last fiscal year (ended March 19, 2020), domestic automakers produced a total of 927,197 vehicles, 855,000 of which were passenger cars.
Since July, the ministry has resumed the release of auto production reports after a long gap.
