Suspension of Activities Does Not Mean Cutting Cooperation
The CEO of the Industrial Development and Renovation Organization of Iran (IDRO) says contracts with foreign auto-makers are still valid and are underway and customers should not be worried over delivery of the pre-sales or after sale services.
Mansour Moazzami said the activities of French giant car-makers Peugeot and Citroen are underway as before and nothing has happened to make the customers worried about their pre-purchased cars or the after-sale services.
He added that based on contracts with French car-makers with SAIPA Company, 2,000 Citroen cars C3 have been pre-sold and the delivery will be based on the dates mentioned in the contracts.
He reiterated there is no problem in delivery of the pre-sold cars to the buyers and people should not get worried.
Moazzami went on to say that in contract between Peugeot Co. and Iran Khodro, only Peugeot car model 2008 has been pre-sold and the company has delivered some and other deliveries will be in due times.
On recent reaction of foreign car-makers to the U.S. exit from the JCPOA and return of sanctions, Moazzami said that suspension of activities does not mean severing cooperation with Iranian companies and no foreign car-making company has had any official announcement over leaving Iran. He said all those reactions were only to the U.S. pressures. He reiterated that all the contracts have been signed based on the international regulations as the foreign companies have been offered enough incentives to continue cooperation.
