125,030 passenger cars were produced in Iran in December, up 9% year-on-year. December is actually the 9th month of the Persian year 1390, so no Full Year summaries yet for Iran. Over 9 months production is up 7% to 1,067,918 units. No surprises on top, the Saipa Pride continues its ‘one-car show’ with 55,600 units produced in December and 481,415 year-to-date, up 6%.
The Peugeot 206 is back in second place this month at 17,493 units but it is still #3 year-to-date at 127,077 (+9%) below the Peugeot 405, #3 in December at 16,412 units and #2 YTD at 131,603 (-13%). Like last month the Iran Khodro Samand (11,470), Renault Tondar 90 aka Dacia Logan (8,345) and Peugeot Pars (7,751) follow.
The Saipa Tiba is up 4% and one spot on November to reach 3,513 units produced at #7, far from impressive for a fully Iranian model but still its strongest month ever so far! Perhaps the Top 5 in Western calendar year 2012…
