Iran has approved imports of Chevrolet cars

7,500 imported cars to hit Iranian roads

Financial Tribune – A two-year tussle between Iranian auto importers and government officials is coming to a close, with 7,500 imported vehicles receiving permits to hit the domestic roads.

Secretary of Iran Auto Importers Association Mehdi Dadfar has announced that following extensive talks between IAIA and officials, 7,500 imported vehicles will receive permits to enter the Iranian market, IAIA’s website reported.

“With the help of government agencies, license plates are to be issued for these vehicles,” he added.

In the past two years, auto imports were banned, reinstated and banned again while a scandal unfolded, in which government officials were accused of facilitating the illicit import of luxury vehicles.
