Rising input costs and weakening of the Indian currency against the euro have put significant pressure on the overall costing structure, says Mercedes-Benz India.
Mercedes-Benz India on Friday announced that its cars are set to become costlier in the country soon. The updated price list will come into effect from January 15th. The latest price hike would be in the range of 5%, across the model range.
In a press note sent recently, the company said that it 'has been investing in introducing new technologies and features' across its entire product portfolio. However, rising input costs and weakening of the Indian currency against euro in the past few months have put significant pressure on the overall costing structure for brand.

We have been operating a sustainable and future-ready business; however, a necessary price correction is required to offset the continuous rise in input and operational costs."
