Iran Cars Market 2016 grew fast gaining the 15th place in the World ranking with over 1.3 million sales. For Peugeot Iran is the second biggest market aiming to be the first in the 2017. Renault shining.

Iran’s economy expanded at a considerable pace during the first half of SH 2016, which began on 20 March, powered by rising oil production and exports due to the lifting of economic sanctions. However, analysts warned that growth was failing to trickle down to ordinary people, with unemployment rising over the period.

A large fiscal deficit continues to weigh on the state’s ability to support growth, while measures to offset the drop in oil revenues—including higher utility fees and a lower public wage bill—are weighing on household spending.

The automotive sector boomed in the 2016 both in terms of local production and import while the optimistic plans to export local made vehicles failed so far, waiting for the start of Peugeot last models exports.
