Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Renault, Kia India, and MG Motor announced plans to raise vehicle prices beginning in January to offset the impact of rising input costs.They join market leaders Maruti Suzuki India and Tata Motors in making year-end price increases effective next month, reported PTI.Audi India announced a 1.7 percent price increase across the board, while Mercedes-Benz India announced a 5% price increase beginning January 1.Meanwhile, Kia India said the quantum of price increase would be up to Rs 50,000, depending upon model and trim. Renault, on the other hand, has not disclosed the magnitude of the price increase it intends to implement beginning next month.MG Motor India said, it intends to increase prices soon ranging between two-three per cent depending on models and variants.The primary objective of the company's business strategy focuses on a model that begets profitability and sustainability. The price correction is affected as a result of the rising supply-chain-related input and operational costs, PTI quoted Audi India Head Balbir Singh Dhillon as saying. The new price range for the company models is directed at maintaining the premium price positioning of the brand, ensuring sustainable growth of both the automaker and its dealer partners, he added.Audi India's current line-up includes the petrol-powered A4, A6, A8 L, Q3, Q5, Q7, Q8, S5 Sportback, RS 5 Sportback, and RSQ8.Its electric vehicle portfolio under the e-Tron brand comprises the e-Tron 50, e-Tron 55, e-Tron Sportback 55, e-Tron GT and RS e-Tron GT.Mercedes-Benz India said constant increase in input costs and increased logistics costs have been exerting significant pressure on the overall operational costs of the company.This development has prompted the automaker to upwardly revise the ex-showroom price of its model range, enabling a sustainable and profitable business, it said.Mercedes-Benz India Managing Director & CEO Martin Schwenk said although the company is absorbing the majority of the increase, it is left with no option but to pass on some portion of the cost hike to the customers.To run a sustainable and profitable business for us and our franchise partners, a price correction is necessitated to offset the rising inflationary cost pressures, he added.Renault India said: Reasons for the price hike are to partially offset the impact of constant increases in input costs largely driven by pricier commodities, fluctuations in foreign exchange rates, inflation and also due to regulatory obligations.It, however, did not disclose the quantum of its impending price hike.Jato Dynamics India President and Director Ravi Bhatia said the increase in commodity prices coupled with supply chain issues faced by the manufacturers, addition of new technologies and features in automobiles and meeting regulatory requirements have pushed up the cost.Hyundai Motor India and Honda Cars said they have not yet taken a call on the matter.

7 Updates That Have Been Confirmed for the Tata Harrier

New Delhi: Tata Motors intends to present the Harrier in its facelift. The makeover of this favorite SUV has been pending for a long time. To compete with renowned rivals like Mahindra Scorpio N and Mahindra XUV700, the company is introducing a slew of new features. It has lots of contemporary amenities. The five-seat SUV already has several special edition models (including the Dark and Kaziranga versions). Tata is now targeting a complete update for its flagship line. It is estimated that the 2023 Tata Harrier facelift will be launched in late 2022 or early 2023. Also Read: Kawasaki will Launch its EV next year Face Lift Design: Every facelift has a new look. Despite the endearing look of the Tata Harrier, the new facelift is likely to see a slew of changes. There will probably be many new changes to the traditional Harrier design. Alternative Petrol Engines: Due to their low initial cost, gasoline cars are becoming more and more popular among auto enthusiasts. Consequently, the Tata Harrier facelift could be powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine whose power and torque outputs are unknown. With this option, the starting prices are likely to come down. Carriage Airflow and Air Purifier: At present, only the special edition variants of the Tata Harrier have ventilated seats. However, the new facelift will come standard with every model with ventilated seats and an air purifier. While ventilated seats are great for keeping cool in summers, most cities require air purifiers. A modern entertainment system system: The small and slow performance of the infotainment system of the current Tata Harrier is one of its biggest drawbacks. This is a significant drawback as most modern automobiles have sizable touchscreen displays. A stylish infotainment system will be included with the 2023 Tata Harrier along with all existing convenience features and connectivity options. Also Read: Mahindra collaborate with Jio-bp, Charge+Zone, to provide EV charging solutions Featuring an Advanced Driver Assistance System: The existence of ADAS features is yet to be confirmed by Tata Motors. However, it is quite typical of all contemporary mid-sized SUVs, especially those modeled after the MG Astor. The ADAS feature will be included in all upcoming models. It is highly likely that the Tata Harrier facelift will also have these features. Camera 360-degree rotation: Additionally, a 360-degree camera is available for use with the Tata Harrier in 2023. In today's SUVs, this feature is also quite prevalent. When parked in confined spaces or even on the highway, the 360-degree camera is a life saver. However, Tata Motors has not officially confirmed the availability of this feature. Low Cost: The Tata Harrier facelift is probably going to be priced lower at the time of launch as it is powered by a petrol engine. This will enhance the consumer appeal for the new model and give it a competitive advantage over competitors like Creta or Seltos. Also Read: Hero MotoCorp is creating 300cc+ motorcycles for India
