The Dacia Logan variant that Renault will build in Iran together with two local partners, will have prices that start from 6750 euro. This is according to a declaration of a minister from the Teheran government, taken by the Mehr News, the iranian news agency.
” It isn’t an extraordinary phenomenon, it doesn’t meet all the international needs, and the iranian press has given it too much importance.”, said about the future Dacia Logan to be made in Iran the minister of mines and industry, Alireza Tahmasbi.
He also said that the price of the iranian Dacia Logan will begin from 6750 euro. Renault has partnered with two iranian auto manufacturers, Pars and Iran Khodro, that will build in the period march 2007 – february 2008 around 190,000 Dacia Logan cars. The Dacia Logan will enter the Iranian market with two engines, of 1.6 and 2.0 liters.
Apparently the Dacia Logan will be sold under the name Tondar, a words that means “lightning” in iranian. The production of the Dacia Logan was planned to be started since last year but due to the fact that 65% of the parts will be made in Iran they had to delay the start so they could improve the quality. Iran will become the second largest production center for the Dacia Logan after Romania. Last year, Renault made around 200,000 Dacia Logan in Romania, 60,000 in Russia and 15,000 in Morocco.
