Maruti Suzuki India on Tuesday announced an increase in the prices of its entire model range with immediate effect amid rising cost pressure due to high commodity prices.
"An estimated weighted average of increase across models stands at around 0.45 per cent. This indicative figure is calculated using Ex Showroom prices of models in Delhi and will come into effect from January 16, 2024," the company said in an exchange filing.
The company had on April 1 last year raised prices across all its vehicle models. Maruti Suzuki India sells a range of cars, starting from Alto to Invicto, priced between Rs 3.54 and Rs 28.42 lakh (ex-showroom).
