India’s second-largest carmaker, Hyundai Motor India (HMIL) will raise prices of its cars by upto 2 percent, effective from January.
This year’s hike is half the price hike it made last year, according to Hyundai. This year, the hike will remain up to ₹50,000, even for the Tuscon, which is the most expensive model in its line-up. Commenting on the hike, Rakesh Srivastava, Director – Sales & Marketing, said, “We have been absorbing the increase in input and material costs but now are constrained to increase the prices by 2 percent.” Between April and November, Hyundai sales went up by 5.14 percent, where the Company sold 3.58 lakh units, in comparison to the same period, last year.
