As part of the ongoing negotiations by Russia and the Islamic Republic from 2022, several areas are being discussed. One of them is the production of automotive components.
The second directly concerns the cars themselves – their deliveries and the possible organization of joint production in Russia.
“It seems to me that our mutual opportunities can complement each other and a synergy can be created here. This is another idea that we are currently working on,” Kazem Jalali said in an interview with the Parliamentary Newspaper.
Currently, the two largest Iranian car manufacturers, Saipa and Iran Khodro, are busy certifying their models for the Russian market. However, it is still not entirely clear how Iranian cars will get to the Russian Federation – directly or through the territory of Belarus.
Saipa is expected to bring the Quik hatchback and Saina sedan based on the Kia Pride platform, while IKCO will supply the Tara and Dena sedans with Peugeot DNA.
