In an official release, Hyundai said the price hike has been decided owing to rising input costs, adverse exchange rates and an increase in commodity prices, among other reasons. Speaking about the price hike, Tarun Garg, COO of Hyundai Motor India, said that it has become imperative to pass on some portion of rising input costs to the consumers through a minor price hike.
However, the car manufacturer didn't reveal the extent of the price hike and which car will see how much price hike. “At Hyundai Motor India, we always try to absorb the cost escalations to the extent possible and ensure continuous customer delight. However, it has now become imperative to pass on some portion of the rising input cost to the market through a minor price increase. The price hike will be effective from January 1st, 2024," Garg said. Hyundai also said that it will continue to make efforts to minimize future price impacts on customers.
