    New Iranian cars on their way to Iraq
    02-19-2024
    One does not make the slightest effort to monitor Iranian-made cars roaming the Iraqi streets, despite a previous Iraqi decision not to import them due to their lack of quality standards and repeated criticism of their efficiency, even in Iran itself.[/size]
    [size=45]The cheap price of the Iranian car prompts many unemployed people to buy it and use it as a taxi.[/size]
    [size=45]Ahmed Hadi (28 years old), a taxi driver in Baghdad, says: “Most taxi drivers in Baghdad and the provinces work in Iranian cars, even though they lack safety and security standards, due to their cheap prices compared to the high prices of other cars.”[/size]
    [size=45]He adds that one of the reasons for purchasing is that cars that are frequently driven on the roads are vulnerable to various breakdowns, which is why Iranian cars are in demand because their spare parts are cheap, “and even their maintenance is much cheaper than other cars.”[/size]
    [size=45]The price of an Iranian car starts from $2,000 and upwards depending on its condition and capabilities, while the price of a Chinese or Korean car of medium capabilities in the Iraqi market starts at $8,000, and the price increases depending on the make, model, and accessories.[/size]
    [size=45]Speaking to the Arab World News Agency, Hadi confirmed that Iranian cars are often involved in traffic accidents “because of their lack of durability.” Especially since it is not competitive with other high-speed cars. Any excessive speed exceeds its ability to cause loss of balance, and therefore causes many traffic accidents.”[/size]
    [size=45]He points out that most citizens do not travel in these cars or move in them outside their governorates for fear of traffic accidents. He continues: “Movement in these cars is mostly limited to within cities; Especially in the hot summer, when it malfunctions frequently and gets hot.”[/size]
    [size=45]Durability:
    In 2018, Iraq banned the import of Iranian cars, and also banned the import of their spare parts for assembling them in the Iraqi factories that were producing them under the name (Taiba), in compliance with US sanctions on Iran.[/size]
    [size=45]However, in parallel with banning the import of cars produced by the Iranian government, a private Iranian company announced last June that it had begun exporting the J4 car to Iraq, and the first batch was shipped.

    “Pride” cars are subject to internal criticism in Iran due to the large number of traffic accidents (ILNA).
    According to the company, which is (Kerman Motor), Iraq is the first export destination for its cars, as reported by the Iranian government “Mehr” agency. The company intends to export 4,000 cars this year.[/size]
    [size=45]Saif Aqeel (33 years old), the owner of a car repair shop in the center of the capital, Baghdad, confirms: “Iranian cars are completely devoid of any durability in terms of the engine, electricals, and even the general body of the car, and therefore traffic accidents do not happen to these cars, as they do not have real safety standards.” And safety.”[/size]
    [size=45]Aqeel adds: “Recently, there has been a significant decline in the purchase of Iranian cars by citizens after the increase in their breakdowns and the number of accidents. Especially since Iranian cars do not have the capabilities that allow their drivers to travel on foreign roads and move between distant provinces.”[/size]
    [size=45]He continued by saying: “There is a large import of Iranian spare parts, and the price of these parts is much cheaper than other car spare parts, and the importers sell them in US dollars and not in Iraqi dinars, but we sell them to citizens in dinars.”[/size]
    [size=45]Criticism from within Iran.
    Criticism of Iranian cars has come frequently, even from within Iran itself. On more than one occasion, Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei criticized the national automobile industry, calling for improving its quality, and demanding respect for its users and their lives.[/size]
    [size=45]A member of the Iranian Expediency Discernment Council, Mustafa Mirsalim, previously harshly criticized the automobile industry in his country, saying: “We do not ask you to export cars to Japan, but we can export to Iraq and Senegal. “These two countries are even dissatisfied with the quality of Iranian cars.”[/size]
    [size=45]Economic affairs researcher Salam Sumaise believes that trade and economics with Iran is an issue with a political dimension, “especially since the majority of trade is in the interest of Iran, and in order to support it in the face of the blockade and sanctions imposed on it by the United States of America.”[/size]
    [size=45]She added to the Arab World News Agency: “Iraq’s import of Iranian cars is more of a political trend than an economic one. Especially since these cars have many major faults and negative technical indicators, in addition to the fact that they are sold to Iraq at a higher price than their real price in Iran.”[/size]
    [size=45]She continued: “The local market has become a market for importing Iranian goods, and in exchange for this, we do not find any export of any Iraqi goods to the Iranian market, so that actual trade exchange can be achieved.” The exchange is currently one-sided and for the benefit of one party only.”[/size]
    [size=45]Earlier, the Iranian news website Tejarat News spoke about Iraq’s refusal to import Iranian cars due to their low quality.[/size]
    [size=45]The regulatory authorities
    , in turn, economic affairs expert Hammam Al-Shamaa spoke about the continued invasion of Iranian cars into the local market in Iraq, “even though they lack high specifications and safety,” and said that the continuation of this import “does not have any beneficial economic aspect for Iraq at all, but rather is for the benefit of Iran only.” .[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Shamaa called on government regulatory authorities to inspect any car imported into Iraq to ensure that it is subject to safety and security standards. He continued: “Iranian cars lack public safety standards, unlike Chinese cars, which are highly durable and constantly evolving.”[/size]
    [size=45]In his speech, he stressed that trade between Iraq and Iran “must be joint and reciprocal and not for the benefit of one party.” Especially since Iraq has become a large market for selling Iranian goods, and this matter has caused the dollar to be exported to Iran illegally, and is perhaps one of the most prominent reasons for the dollar crisis that Iraq has been witnessing for many months.”[/size]
    [size=45]Since the beginning of this year, Washington has been trying to stop the exit of the dollar from Iraq to Iran, and imposed sanctions on dozens of Iraqi banks for dealing in US currency with Iran.[/size]
    [size=45]This hard-line position on the part of Washington led to confusion in sending payments for gas that Iraq imports from Iran to operate power plants, causing a crisis in energy provision.[/size]
