Iran Khodro increased factory prices of three models at the weekend including vehicles based on Peugeot 405 and Renault Logan.
The company raised the price of a face-lifted version of Peugeot 405 with automatic gearbox locally known as Peugeot Pars from 540 million rials ($4,820) to 83 million rials ($7,410), a whopping 54% increase.
Factory price of a pickup model based on Renault Logan, called Tondar in Iran has been almost doubled reaching 770 million rials ($6,870) from 390 million rials ($3,480). The state-affiliated firm also increased the price of the Chinese-derived pickup Arisan from 310 million rials ($2,760) to 360 million rials ($3,220)
While experts say IKCO’s decision to jack up prices to such a large extent is illegal and unacceptable, the company has put out a press release claiming that the decision is fully in line with state regulations.
