Volkswagen is back in Iran after 17 years
Taking advantage of the end of international sanctions, Volkswagen officially announces its return to Iran after 17 years of absence from the Islamic market.
The German carmaker has in fact signed an agreement with Mammut Khodro (a local Scania brand importer) that will allow Tiguan and Passat models to be launched in Iran from August.
In the project, eight dealers in the Tehran area will be initially involved.
Volkswagen had started operations in Iran in the 1950s with the marketing of the Beetle and then continued with Bulli in the 60s and with the Gol in the 1990s, before retiring in 2000.
