Hybrid car import tariffs have been reduced in Iran after a long, heated fracas between the private sector and the Ministry of Industries. The government introduced an amended version of import rules in January as per which customs duties on hybrids were jacked up exorbitantly, but now the previous spike has receded.
According to the numbers released by the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration, the tariff rate for hybrid vehicles will depend on the capacity of vehicles’ gasoline-burning engines.
For hybrids with engine capacity of less than 1,500 cc and below, the import tariffs has dropped to 5% and for cars with the engine size between 1,500 cc and 2,500 cc, the customs duty stands at 25%.
