Bahman Group (Persian: گروه بهمن‎) is an Iran-based manufacturer of vehicles under license by Mazda. Founded in 1952 by Mr. Amanollah Sarbaz and his son, they have since then manufactured, under license, versions of Mazda's trucks. Today they manufacture versions of the Mazda B-Series pickups and the previous generation Mazda 323 and Mazda 3. They also manufacture Isuzu buses and FAW trucks. Currently the group is headed by Mohammad Reza Soroush.

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) reportedly holds 45 percent of the company's share, and most of their vehicles are built by them.[1]
