Hyundai Motor India to hike prices by up to Rs 5,000 from Nov

Hyundai Motor India to hike prices by up to Rs 5,000 from Nov New Delhi: Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL) on Monday said prices of its vehicles across models will go up by up to Rs 5,000 from November 1.

"The price increase has been necessitated by a variety of input costs," HMIL Vice-President (National Sales and Marketing) Rakesh Srivastava said in a statement.

HMIL sells a range of models, from entry level Eon with price starting at Rs 2.75 lakh to premium sports utility vehicles tagged up to Rs 25.38 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

"The price increase would be up to Rs 5,000 across models and would come into effect from November 1, 2012," the company said.

Other car makers have already increased prices of their vehicles. Earlier this month, General Motors India announced hike in prices of its entire range of models by Rs 8,000 to Rs 20,000 depending upon the various models to minimise the impact of adverse currency movement and high input costs.

Maruti Suzuki, Honda Cars, Renault and Audi have also raised the prices of their vehicles to offset adverse impact of foreign exchange fluctuation and rising input costs.
