Tata Motors raises prices for all passenger vehicles to offset high input costs


Tata Motors raises prices for passenger vehicles with immediate effect

Tata Motors said on Saturday it had raised passenger vehicle prices by an average of 0.55%, effective immediately. The automaker attributed the rise in prices of its vehicles to rising input costs. The increased prices will not be applicable to customers who have already made reservations.

“A weighted average price increase of 0.55% will take effect from Saturday across the range, depending on variant and model,” according to a statement from Tata Motors.

The company said it had taken all necessary steps to absorb rising input costs before making the decision to raise final prices for customers.

“However, to offset the residual impact of the cumulative increase in input costs, it passes on a minimized price increase,” the statement added.

Earlier in July, the company raised prices for commercial vehicles due to rising input costs. A price increase of around 1.5 to 2.5% was applied to all utility vehicles from July 1st.
