German luxury carmaker Mercedes-Benz has announced that it will introduce a price hike on its India-spec vehicles from 1st April 2022. The automaker stated that prices of its entire model range would increase by around 3%, thanks to rising input costs. Another reason behind the price hike is to counter the increased logistics costs that applied pressure on the company’s overall costs. Additionally, this move will help in reducing Mercedes-Benz India’s operational costs due to rising input costs for a sustainable, strong business.
