The next frontier for EVs could be…Iran?

LG International has signed a tentative deal with the Iranian government to cooperate in developing EVs and charging infrastructure, according to Yonhap News.

Few details are available, but Iran’s Mehr News Agency (via Green Car Congress) reported that LG International will oversee the project jointly with the Iranian government, and that sister companies LG Electronics, LG Chem and LG Innotek will lead efforts to develop electric motors, batteries and key auto parts.

LG International will work with automaker Iran Khodro to build 20 EVs by 2018, and to set up charging stations in Tehran. The plan is to produce about 60,000 EVs by 2023.
