India will raise the price of all its vehicles from January 2021, India’s Minister of State for Road and Highways, Prakash Javadekar, said on Wednesday. He announced that prices for Maruti Suzuki, Toyota, Honda, Hyundai and Mercedes-Benz will be revised from January 2021. Prices will also rise in the coming months, he said Wednesday, according to a report from Automotive News Group.
The price increase will be implemented nationwide from 1 January 2021 and will only apply to suppliers and completely built units. Javadekar says there will have been no price increase for any model.
As for the price increase, Maruti Suzuki is expected to announce the exact model – a smart increase sometime before the end of December 2020. The more expensive cars will receive a higher percentage increase, while entry-level models will receive only small increases to ensure that the best-selling models are not severely affected. This could be the first price increase of its kind for a car in India, and it could also provide details of the percentage increases for each car. It could be officially announced at a later date or not, but we expect it to be announced sometime after the end of December 2020, Javadekar said.

The RS7 Sportback costs 1.94 Cr, while the 600 hp RS Q8 is available from 2.07 Cr for the price of the showroom. Sources say the price increase is due to Audi’s CBU models, meaning that there is likely to be a price increase for the RS6 and RS 7 Sportback, with the Sportback seeing its price rise from the showroom.
On the other hand, there is a price increase for the top-end version, which costs Rs 59,996, while the RS 7 Sportback and RS 6 are available from Rs 57,912 and Rs 52,848, respectively. The Honda Activa 5-G STD is the basic version, priced at R $57,731, and the 5.0-g STD version costs R $60,071.
The flagship A8 L is available at retail for 1.56 crons, while the price range of the Q8 ranges from Rs 1 core to Rs 2 core for the top-end version of the car and Rs 3 core and R 2 crore for the basic version.
Maruti Suzuki offers a wide range of products and is far ahead of other manufacturers. The latest price increase concerns the second car sold by market leader Maruti in India – the A8 L. It is launched with prices ranging from Rs 34 – 99 to 48 – 89 lakh for a top-end version of the car and Rs 2 – 3 crore for its basic and basic version. With a market share of over 40 percent in the country’s 10 largest auto markets, the country has a strong lead over its competitors in terms of selling cars with more than 1.5 lakh units per month.
Audi in India did not disclose the exact model – and did not even specify which models would see a price increase. Currently, Maruti sells the Alto with a starting price of Rs 2.95 for the basic and the top-end XL6 variant with a price of Rs 11.52 for both variants. The entry-level prices of the premium six-seater MPV, the A8 L, range from 12.5 to 14 Rs in the top-end versions, making it the most expensive car on the market. Prices for all its products increase with each model, from Rs 1.4 lakh to Rs 3.2 lakh per unit for the base model and up to Rs 2 – 95 lakhs for the Alto.
Maruti Suzuki attributed the increase to rising input costs, which in turn are driving up production costs. Toyota is considering a price increase of up to 10 percent for the top models of the Toyota Prius and Toyota Corolla, according to the company.
The company said in a statement that it is considering raising prices after regularly reviewing the ongoing pressures of rising production costs, which is also a common industry phenomenon. It is therefore imperative that the company pass on the impact of the above additional costs to customers by increasing prices from January 2021, “it said. Maruti Suzuki plans to “pass on all the effects of these additional costs to customers” and the scheme will take effect from January 1.
