Pune: India’s largest luxury carmaker Mercedes-Benz India today announced an upward revision in the price of its entire model range effective from the first week of January, 2020. The correction in the price would be up to the quantum of 3%, varying across the broad model range. The upcoming price hike aims at offsetting the increase in various input and commodity costs, from January 2020.
Mr. Martin Schwenk, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India said, “We have been reviewing the various cost escalations, including the rise in the commodity and input costs that have been exerting pressure on our bottom line.
