SAIPA Supplies 2nd Batch of High-Quality Iranian-Made Cars to Venezuela

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s second largest car manufacturing company “SAIPA” has forwarded another batch of its high-quality cars to Venezuela under an automotive export and joint manufacturing deal signed between the two countries in June.

Saipa said in a Wednesday statement that it had delivered 1,000 completely build-up (CBU) cars to Venezuela in the Iranian calendar month to late June.

The statement said the shipment sent to Venezuela included 700 Quik ST and 300 Saina S models as well as six containers of spare parts.

It said the market and customers in Venezuela had reacted positively to a first batch of Saipa cars sent to the country in March, adding that the delivery of the new shipment had started only within 20 days of receiving orders from the buyer.

Iran is supplying cars to Venezuela under a memorandum of understanding that was finalized during a trip by Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi to Caracas in early June, Press TV reported.

Under the deal, which covers exports of finished cars from Iran as well as cars manufactured in a joint plant in Venezuela, Iran will supply 200,000 cars to customers in the country in the next five years.

Venezuelan authorities said in November last year that some 80,000 orders had been placed in the country for cars manufactured by Saipa.

Saipa and Iran’s leading car manufacturing company “IKCO” own 36% of the shares at Venezuelan Iranian Automotive Company (Venirauto), a company in Venezuela which is planning to resume operation after some eight years of inactivity.

Saipa has also agreed to join operations at another idle car factory in Venezuela to help the country develop production of commercial vehicles and trucks.
