Iran Khodro (IKCO) has reportedly announced its intention to increase production at its Iraq plant from 50 cars a day to 100.
The plant, in the central Iraqi city of Iskandariya, is IKCO’s largest car plant outside Iran.
According to a report from Just Auto, a drop in transportation fees and a more timely supply of spare parts are among reasons why the company’s vehicles are becoming more popular in Iraq.
Ali Elmi, IKCO Deputy CEO for Exports, said:
“Iran Khodro produces a variety of cars such as Runna, Samand [pictured], Soren, Peugeot Pars and Peugeot 405 in Iraq.”
