Tata Motors to hike passenger vehicle prices by up to Rs 20k


New Delhi: Tata Motors today said it will hike price of its entire passenger vehicle model range by up to Rs 20,000 from January. “Due to the impact of various macro-economic factors, Tata Motors has decided to increase the prices of its passenger vehicles, with the maximum increase being upto Rs 20,000 on some models,” Tata Motors said in a statement.

The company sells various models from entry level Nano GenX to multi purpose vehicle Aria, priced between Rs 1.99 lakh and Rs 15.51 lakh (all ex-showroom Delhi). Already various car makers including Maruti Suzuki India, Hyundai Motor India, Toyota, General Motors India and German luxury car makers Mercedes Benz and BMW have announced a hike in prices of their vehicles across models from January to offset rising input costs.

Experts say carmakers usually come up with such year-end announcements which help them clear inventories left after the heavy festival discounts on vehicles.
