Iranian production figures are now in for January, roughly equivalent to Dey, the 10th month of the year 1393 in the Persian calendar. The local industry is now firmly on the mend, up 43% year-on-year this month to 89,603 units. The Saipa Pride still dominates but improves by 16% only to 22,255 units, whereas the Peugeot Pars (+44%) and 405 (+54%) outperform the market despite their old age – they were launched in 1987. In fact, the 405 family (the Pars is the higher-end version of the 405) is the best-selling vehicle in Iran this month with almost 27,000 units. The Peugeot 206 is up 110%, the Renault Tondar 90 (aka Dacia Logan) is back up 90% and we welcome back the Chinese in the ranking: the JAC J5 at #8, Lifan X60 at #10 and Lifan 620 at #11.
