According to the statement by Mercedes-Benz India, the increase in the prices of its cars would go up by at least ₹50,000. The highest spike in price could go up to ₹5 lakh. The models that will be impacted due to the change in prices are the A-Class, E-Class and S-Class limousine, GLA, GLC and GLS, besides the AMG GT 63S 4-door coupe among others.
"The imminent price correction would be in the range of 3 per cent, across the entire model range. The constant increase in input costs in addition to an increase in logistics costs have been exerting significant pressure on the overall costs of the company," the Pune-based German luxury carmaker said in a statement today. It added that rising input costs has led to a significant increase in the company’s operational costs.
From April 1 onwards, the price of A 200 Limousine would start from ₹42 lakh; GLA 200 from ₹45 lakh; GLC 200 from ₹62 lakh; GLE 300 d 4M from ₹86 lakh; GLS 400d 4M from ₹1.16 crore; LWB E-Class 200 from ₹71 lakh; S-Class 350 d from ₹1.6 crore; AMG E 63 S 4MATIC (CBU) from ₹1.77 crore; and AMG- GT 63 S 4 Door Coupe (CBU) from ₹2.7 crore (all prices ex-showroom).
Martin Schwenk, MD and CEO at Mercedes-Benz India, said, "At Mercedes-Benz we continue to offer the most technologically advanced products for an unmatched product experience. However, to run a sustainable business a price correction is necessary to offset the continuous rise in input and operational costs."
Earlier this month, Audi India had also announced price hike across its product range by up to 3 per cent from April 1.
