Iran bans import of French cars

The Spokesperson of the Ministry of Mines and Trade of Iran announced that the importation of vehicles manufactured by French companies such as Renault, Peugeot and Citroen is prohibited.

According to Iran’s semi-official news agency Tesnim, the importation of French cars has been banned.

Ministry of Industry, Mining and Trade Spokesperson Omid Kalibaf said the decision was taken “in response to the unprofessional behavior” of French automakers in previous years.

“We did not issue any licenses for the import of French cars during this period. Our focus on automobile imports is only European cars that are not Japanese, Korean, Chinese and French.”

“Iran will not allow them (the French) to put pressure on the Iranian auto industry and market with sanctions,” the spokesperson said.


Iranian automakers like “Iran Khodro” and “Saipa” mostly co-produced with French companies like Peugeot, Renault and Citroen. The sanctions imposed by the US in 2018 also targeted the automotive industry, one of the largest employment areas in Iran.

Foreign companies, notably French automakers such as Peugeot, Renault and Citroen, had halted their activities in Iran due to wide-ranging unilateral sanctions by the United States. Therefore, Iran, which faced problems in supplying parts, turned to domestic solutions. (AA)
