Numerous car makers have stopped sales of their cars or parts to Russia since the invasion of Ukraine

A Russian carmaker asked Iran to supply it with critical components it cannot access due to Western sanctions imposed after the invasion of Ukraine, Tehran's state media reported.
Hossein Bahrainian, from the Iranian Auto Parts Makers Association, said a Russian automaker had enquired about purchasing parts, without specifying the company by name, the official IRNA news agency said.

The components in demand included brake systems, seat belts, airbags, alternators, air conditioners, thermostats and power window systems, Bahrainian said, according to the report late Monday.

"Given the Russian automaker's demand for cooperation with Iranian equipment manufacturers, companies that have the capacity to supply Russia... in terms of quality and quantity of production, can try their luck for a presence in the market of this northern neighbor," he said.

Some Iranian car components, including engine cooling and suspension systems, have already been exported to Russia in recent years.

The two countries share a maritime border across the Caspian Sea.

Iran has also suffered under stringent economic sanctions, reimposed by the United States in 2018 after Washington unilaterally pulled out of a deal with world powers on Iran's nuclear program.

Western carmakers ventured into Russia to assemble cars over the past two decades as the country's economy expanded.

However, since Moscow sent troops into Ukraine in February, numerous car makers stopped sales of their cars or parts to Russia - including Audi, Honda, Jaguar and Porsche.

Makes that have halted Russian production include BMW, Ford, Hyundai, Mercedes, Volkswagen and Volvo

Renault's $2.4B worth of Russian assets prove too toxic

:rofl:
I wonder just what the final grand total of all of these losses and write-offs is ultimately going to add up to for the eurovassels,and thats of course without including the hundreds of billions in lost trade in the short term.
Economic warfare is a 2-way street after all.

Expected, China can not cover everything what lack for russian industry and general consumption, as the sanctions and ties with west will be cut for longer period of time, this opportunity probably will be seized and will improve overall Iran's economy.
