Reason for Maruti Suzuki’s price hike

One reason for the price increase is cited in an MSIL regulatory filing as rising input costs, including escalating steel and precious metal prices. Incidentally, even though it’s GM’s third official price hike, this actually marks GM’s fourth, as it previously raised prices on the Swift and its entire CNG range in July.

According to Sunjay Kapur, president of the Automotive Component Manufacturers Association of India (ACMA), “There are strong headwinds with regard to the supply chain, including the chip shortage, raw material price increases, uncertainty around logistics in terms of the non-availability of containers, and shipping rates that are skyrocketing. The industry needs to overcome these challenges.”
