During the Cabinet meeting on Sunday, import tariffs for hybrid vehicles were once again amended after the government relented to mounting public pressure.
Saeed Bastani, spokesman of Majlis Industries and Mines Commission, said the Cabinet discussed hybrid car tariffs and set the same at 5-20%, ICANA reported.
It comes as no surprise that the administration raised the tariff rates. Ever since the government introduced a new directive in January increasing hybrid tariffs from 5% to 15-65%, the public and environmentalists had not stopped denouncing the decision.
