119,230 passenger cars were produced in Iran in Dey 1390, roughly equivalent to January 2012 (21 December 2011 to 20 January 2012) in the Persian calendar. That’s a 10% drop year-on-year. The entire Top 9 is unchanged vs. last month, a pretty stable production ranking indeed. The Saipa Pride is still by far the most popular model in the country with no less than 49,220 units produced this month, albeit a 19% fall year-on-year. Follow the Peugeot 206 at 17,918 units (+13%) and Peugeot 405 at 16,233 (-6%). Note the 206 and 405 positions are reversed in the year-to-date ranking, Dey being the 10th month of the persian year 1390.
The Iran Khodro Samand is in difficulty this month at 11,339 units, down 19% year-on-year. It’s quite the opposite for the Renault Tondar 90 (aka Dacia Logan), exactly doubling its production in a year: from 4,287 units to 8,584 this month. Its year-to-date total is up 95% at 75,244 units, staying ahead of the Peugeot Pars at 74,379 (+1%). The other model to see its sales take off is the Saipa Tiba with 3,533 units produced this month (its strongest month so far), a 484% increase year-on-year.
