This is not the first time, Maruti Suzuki has announced a price hike decision in 2021. Earlier this year, the largest carmaker in India announced multiple price hikes of its cars, owing to increased raw material costs and ramped up production costs.

Earlier in September this year, Maruti Suzuki announced a price hike. The carmaker increased the prices of its select models by 1.9 per cent, which became effective September 6, 2021. The price hike ranged from 1,000 to 22,500, depending on the model.

The auto industry has been facing strong headwinds for the last several months. The latest in the series of challenges is the chip shortage that is hurting the auto industry very bad. Along with that, soaring raw material prices, uncertainty around logistics in terms of non-availability of containers and higher shipping rates too are affecting the industry.

Lack of availability for the key raw materials like steel and magnesium too are impacting the industry majorly. With Maruti Suzuki already announcing the price hike, expect other car manufacturers to walk the same path.
