The country's largest car maker Maruti Suzuki India on Tuesday said it will hike prices of its vehicles from January to offset rising input costs.
Other car manufacturers such as Toyota, Mahindra & Mahindra and Mercedes-Benz said they are also contemplating a similar move.
Hyundai Motor India and Honda Cars India, however, said they will not increase vehicle prices in January, but their products will see rise in prices when BS-VI compliant models are introduced in the market.
Taking the first step for the year-end price hike announcements, Maruti Suzuki India said in a regulatory filing that over the past year the cost of company's vehicles has been impacted adversely due to increase in various input costs, "Hence, it has become imperative for the company to pass on some impact of the above additional cost to customers" it added.
