Khodrocar - Immediately after the approval of the plan, the Director General of the Office of Export and Import Regulations stressed the continued impending import of cars, but the question arises that, in the current situation and the continuation of the car import ban, it would be necessary to dedicate a clause to the car market plan?
"This news is not related to the reality of hybrid cars, and the bill signed by the parliament for importing electric and hybrid cars with a zero-rate tariff was only a media task.” Ali Shokouhi, expert of auto industry told khodrocar reporter.
"As long as there is no possibility of registration in this system, even with the approval of the parliament, there will be no possibility of import, whereas in this bill, the rules of customs of these cars are considered, not their ordering.” He said.
"This requires the adoption of import, while the reality of the car market is very different from what is shown, so that the impact of imported vehicles on the market is high, while the share of imported cars is 4 to 6 percent The entire car market includes, but this share is more than 20% marketed in the market.” He added.
"There is currently no possibility of producing hybrid cars in Iran, and even in the import of these vehicles, we are in trouble because of the lack of infrastructure. Therefore, the tariff reduction for importing hybrid cars to zero does not have any effect on the market, but only a short-term shock to the market. Because some are still uninformed about the import process and may be hasty with this decision.” He mentioned.
"This process may occur within these 5 years but will not be possible with the current structure of this process unless the current structure is revised because the instructions, support and oversight are not currently performed properly, so this will be possible if the current situation improves.” He said.
According to these statements, the question arises, in the context of the fact that not only does not provide the field of car imports to the country, but the government's decision to ban imports, ratification of such acts by the parliament is questionable. The release of importing hybrid cars with zero tariffs, which can’t be built inside, will no doubt be achieved without any further dependence on demand.
