Renault Trucks has signed to agreements with Iranian importer Arya Diesel Motors.
The agreements cover the import of vehicles from the T, C, and K ranges, and the assembly of T range vehicles in Iran, according to Renault.
The first agreement covers the import, distribution, and after-sales service of the T, C, and K range trucks. The agreement furthers the working partnership between Renault Trucks and Arya Diesel Motors that began in 2006, according to Renault.
The second agreement is an industrial cooperation agreement. The manufacturing site of Arya Diesel Motors, which is located 90 km south-west of Teheran, will begin assembling Renault Trucks T, starting in Q3 of 2017. Prior to the 2012 embargo, the Arya assembly plant, which was built in 2009, assembled the Renault Premium and Kerax, according to Renault.
“Iran is an important, historic market for Renault Trucks. We are now returning to the country with strong, reliable vehicles and a high-quality partner, Arya Diesel Motors. Our ambition is to eventually achieve a 15 % market share,” explained Bruno Blin, president of Renault Trucks.
