Tata Motors is mulling a hike in the price of its passenger cars, Indica and Indigo, by a significant amount with effect from October 1 next month.

According to an internal communication circulated among top Tata Motors officials, the company plans to hike prices to minimise the impact of rising input costs, particularly tyres.

Significant price increase in Indicas and Indigos from October 1, the internal communication said.

Another auto giant, Hyundai Motors, hiked the prices of its vehicles from this month.

Hyundai Motor India increased the prices of its products across models by up to 1.2 per cent from September 1.

The upward revision in the prices was necessary to offset rising input costs, specially that of commodities.

Hyundai sells cars such as Santro, Verna, i10, i20 and Sonata.

The country's largest car-maker, Maruti Suzuki, had also announced an increase in prices, driven by high commodity prices, in August.

Maruti had hiked the prices of all of its models, except the Alto, by up to Rs 7,500.

How much is this 'significant' amount in the case of Tata cars?
And has the price of the i20 been hiked yet?
These are the questions in my mind.

I came to know about Tata Motors price hike a couple of days ago, this has now become a norm to which customers have eventually gotten used to. First, the automobile prices are hiked due to obvious so-called reason of rising manufacturing costs, and later during festive period a li’l discounts are offered which is already compensated in advance, and ultimately who remains in profit is certainly the manufacturer only.

Re: Its time for Price Hike Again !!

I do not understand the need of these hikes, seriously. On the one hand they are increasing price and on the other hand giving discounts on Petrol cars. [confused]

I agree, they would gain more on Diesel cars but again Diesel cars are already expensive.[anger]
