 Iran Pickup Production Increases Over 900% Iran Pickup Production Increases Over 900%

Zamyad, a subsidiary of SAIPA, reported a 940% rise in its output compared to last year, according to a company release this week.

The company produced 47 pickup trucks during the first eight months of the current Iranian year (started March 20) which, compared to the five units produced last year, indicates a significant jump.

Zamyad is currently producing three pickup models: the Chinese-derived Padra, Shoka and the old Nissan model from the 1970s, which is no longer produced under the Japanese company’s license.

The company has also recently produced two new heavy-duty trucks in collaboration with Italy’s IVECO, the Stralis and Eurocargo models, SAIPA News reported earlier this week.

Production of pickup trucks, which is the second largest auto division though not as fast growing as Iran’s car industry, also observed a significant growth this year with the introduction of new models.

In the first seven months of the current Iranian year, local automakers produced 45,157 pickup trucks, which are 6,902 units more than the production rate in the same period of last year and indicates an 18% rise year-on-year.
