Tata Motors has indicated that the weighted average increase will be 0.9%, depending on the variant and model, but has not provided model-specific pricing details. According to the company, rising manufacturing input costs for vehicles are responsible for the price hike. The company noted in a statement that it had been absorbing a significant part of the increased costs up to this point, but now the company has been compelled by the rising input costs to deal with this by slightly increasing the prices of its vehicles.
Earlier this week, Tata Motors reported that its domestic and overseas sales for October 2022 were 78,335 units – up from 67,829 units in October 2021, representing a growth of 15.49%, owing primarily to the festive season. Domestic sales increased by 17% to 76,537 units in October 2022 from 65,151 units in the same month, last year.
