Three major Iranian carmakers, namely, Iran Khodro Company (IKCO), SAIPA Group, and Pars Khodro, produced 429,414 vehicles during the six months to September 22, the figures released by the Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade indicated.

According to statistics, the production by the said companies increased 0.8 percent compared to the previous year’s same six months which was 425,695, IRNA reported.

During the said six months, IKCO manufactured 205,934 vehicles, which was 2.7 percent less than the corresponding figure for the previous year.

SAIPA manufactured 165,463 vehicles in the said period. Production by this automaker rose 0.53 percent compared to the same period last year.

Pars Khodro produced 58,017 vehicles in the period under review, 17.3 percent more than the output in the first half of the past Iranian year.

Last month, new Industry, Mining and Trade Minister Seyyed Reza Fatemi Amin said that his ministry has a two-year plan for the auto industry based on which this industry will undergo serious changes and improve significantly.

“We must boost competition, improve management and economic mechanisms, and increase production in the auto industry in order to succeed in our plans,” Fatemi Amin said.

Iran’s major carmakers manufactured 900,714 vehicles in the previous Iranian year (which ended on March 20), which was 4.3 percent more than the figure for its preceding year.
