  1. أنا من مصر
    ومحتاج الشفرة بتاعة العربية سايبا بريد موديل2009
    أنا شاريها بس مفتاح إتسرق مني
    وخايف المفتاح التاني يضيع
    لو ممكن ده إبعتولي ميل بالتكلفة والشحن

  2. Hello all,
    Thank you for the answer!
    I found the figures for world production of the Xantia:
    3 months 2009: 3600
    3 months 2010: 3400

  3. Saipa planned to produce Citroen C4 inestead of Xantia but plan changed to new Kia Cerato also Nissan Teana is now producing as a replacement Nissan Maxima by Pars Khodro.

  4. the Citroen Xantia stills been produced there in very small numbers by Saipa. Saipa also the also sells in very small numbers about 40 or 50 the first C4 and C5, Renault Logan, Laguna (previous model). Another that´s not in the list is IKco Runna a blend of a VW polo sedan with a Fiat sienna. IKco produces also the Peugeot 407, 207 and the previous Suzuki grand vitara. Phadro produces the VW polo.

    1. The Citroen Xantia’s production has stopped in 2011 in Iran. Prduction figures are down to zero over the last few months.
      The 207 is produced in Iran under the name 207i, #8 in the ranking.
      The 407 is not produced in Iran, nor are the Laguna, C4 and C5 (or at least their production figures are not recorded).
      Production of the Iran Khodro Runna, based on the 206 sedan, has not started yet.
