Iran imports first EV

The agency reported that, according to Homayoun Haeri, the managing director of Iran Power Generation Transmission & Distribution Management Company (Tavanir), the car has travelled through 17 countries to arrive in Tehran from Paris. 

‘Once fully charged, the electric car is able to travel 100 kilometers,’ he said, adding that the charging process will take 4.5-5 hours. 

‘Fully charging the car will cost only 4,000 rials [€0.11],’ Mr Haeri said. 

The move comes as the Iranian government eliminates the import tariffs on electric and hybrid cars with engines of 2500cc and smaller.
