The ISIRI is taking firm steps toward ridding Iranian of substandard vehicles which endanger the lives of the people, flagrantly burn natural resources and spew poison into the air

Following the introduction of more rigorous automotive standards that have brought the matter of fuel-efficiency to the fore, Iranian authorities have given the axe to several car models which for long have been singled out for being fuel intensive. 
As per a recently introduced directive by Institute of Standards and Industrial Research of Iran, production of eight substandard models has been banned, ISNA reported.
ISIRI had provided carmakers with a time frame to gradually halt production of the eight models. With the institute's earlier deadline for the halt coming and passing, many were concerned that ISIRI has given up on its plans to put an end to the production of shoddy vehicles.
The institute eventually released the names of vehicles which face the production ban. In an exclusive report published on Tuesday, ISNA disclosed the names of eight vehicles that have failed to comply with the standards.
Car manufacturers were compelled by the ISIRI to enforce 63 standards by June 22 or face production suspension.
