In a recent statement regarding the indigenous production of hybrid and electric vehicles, Tehran Municipality's Transportation Committee Chairman Ahmad Donyamali said it is logical and feasible to produce hybrid cars in the country.  The official said hybrid vehicles use less fuel, so much so that they can travel 100 km and only use a maximum of 5 liters of gasoline, according to the Persian website Asre Khodro.  Donyamali noted that the use of hybrid cars as public vehicles is the primary concern of the municipality, stressing that the production of these cars is necessary.  "The hybrid vehicle production inside the country should be given full support by governmental institutions. If we do not financially support this future growth area, it will remain a passive industry," he said.
