It seems Iran has a very good highways system.
But ,when I see photos , Teheran seems congested.
How much km of highways there ?
Eveywhere in the country or around big cities ?
Others in construction ?

There are also a lot of Expressways in Esfahan, Mashhad and Tabriz. There are some under construction in Shiraz, Urmia and Ahvaz. Tehran has more than 500 km of Expressways I think (Completed+u/c)

Only 10 European countries have a higher population than the Tehran metropolitan area, so congestion is not weird.

Tehran has many expressways (probably one the most dense networks in the world), but the network lacks efficiency, it's substandard. A lot of expressways were created by cutting off side roads. Some have U-turns in the median.

Agreed but only in some parts. For example, in Navvab, Tohid, Chamran section west of city centre, there is no at-grade junctions, and no u-turns, but still only because there is too many cars there, it is almost locked everyday. But what Christ said is True in Resalat-Baqeri area and Jenah-Sadeghiyeh area which is almost always congested.

So what are the cars made in Iran?

Iran Khodro and Saipa have their own models (Samand, Tiba and some more) some of which are also assembled at other countries where they have built their factories. Beside these different factories produce Peugeot, Citroen, Kia, Nissan, Renault, Dacia, SsangYong and more. Plus different trucks and buses.

How wide are the lanes on the Tehran expressways? They appear to be under or just at 3 meters wide.

Thanks for info vatse. I wasn't aware of the scale of cars manufacturing in Iran. It is impressive. I have never heard of some of names and brands like Samand or Pazhan. I can also see Chinese involvement in Iranian car industry.

You're welcome. They have invested a lot to car factories during last ~10 years. Without sanctions it would be even better but still Iran is the biggest car maker in whole Middle East, Central Asia and Northern Africa. Maybe in the whole Islamic world also. I have heard that due to sanctions the production is going down currently. Peugeot can't work with Iran Khodro anymore, problems with inflation and so on. But comparing with the situation 20 years ago at least they have much better position to increase the production as soon as the situation is getting better again.

Did you know that because Peugeot had to cut its relationship with Iran, they had lost a lot of their profit and therefore they had to lay off lots of their workers in one of their big factories in France?

I've followed the Iranian auto scene, for quite some time, because of the uniqueness of the vehicles built and sold there. And from time to time, there's an import to stumble upon. Diggin' the Porsche Panamera (centre of bottom pic, extreme right in upper). 8)
