The Volkswagen company after 17-year break returns to the Iranian market.
According to the news Agency Bloomberg, sales of cars of the German brand in Iran will start in August this year. To this end, various cities across the country will open eight dealerships.
In the initial phase in Iran will be supplied compact crossover Tiguan and Passat sedans.
The automaker left the Iranian market in 2000 due to the introduction of international sanctions against the Islamic Republic. The lifting of sanctions in January 2016, following the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program has allowed Volkswagen to get back into this market.

PSA Peugeot Citroen will start production and sales in the Islamic Republic of hatchback Peugeot 208, 2008 crossover vehicles and sedans 301 with engines of the latest generation.
