TEHRAN, Jan. 27 (Mehr News Agency) -- L90 would be introduced to Iran's auto market in summer of 2006 with three months delay. "Jacque Chirac's recent statement bears no impact on this private Iranian-French deal and the postponement is partly due to technical development and aspect of this project," executive director of Iran's Auto Industries Development Company Reza Danesh-Fahim said on Friday.
"The three-month delay is quite natural in this sort of two-year plan while late delivery of a number of machinery and halting Paykan's production are the main reasons in L90's belated introduction," he added.
L90, the would-be national car, is a joint venture between the Pars Renault of Iran and Renault of France. It was to hit the country's streets in mid-spring 2006.
