Tata car prices in India going up from January 19, 2022

Written by Akhil Dalvi

Renowned Indian automotive manufacturer Tata Motors has announced a price hike on its passenger vehicles from January 19th, 2022. The company stated that it will implement an average price increase of 0.9% on select models and variants. Additionally, Tata Motors has decided to undertake a reduction of up to INR 10,000 on specific variants after customer feedback.

Reasons behind the price hike 

Tata Motors has continually focused its efforts on absorbing a significant portion of the increased costs in India. Therefore, to counteract the steep rise in overall input costs, the manufacturer has decided to implement the minimal price hike. Tata Motors states that this decision falls in line with its customer-first approach as it will offer price protection for customers.

This will allow them to maintain the faith and confidence showcased by their customers towards their New Forever range. According to Tata Motors, the price hike will not affect its cars booked on or before January 18th, 2022. The company recently announced a 2.5% price hike on its commercial vehicles, which took effect on 1st January 2022.
