Tata Motors cars are up to Rs. 22,000 more expensive
Due to rising input costs, homegrown automaker Tata Motors has raised the prices of its cars in India this January. The portfolio includes models such as the Tiago, Punch, Harrier, Safari, Altroz, Nexon and Tigor, among others. The vehicles have become costlier by up to Rs. 22,000. No changes have been made to the design and specifications of the four-wheelers.
- Tata Motors is the newest brand to join the growing list of carmakers that have increased the prices of their models in India this year. The rising cost of raw materials is believed to be the key reason.
- The cars have received a substantial price-hike, which might result in demand going down as customers may wait for discounts and offers in the future.
