    Maruti Suzuki price hike: why did prices go up again?

    According to a regulatory filing, MSIL has cited rising input costs, including escalating prices of raw material such as steel and precious metals, as the key reason behind the soaring prices. Incidentally, while this is the company’s third official price hike, it is technically the fourth as it had earlier hiked prices of the Swift and its entire CNG range in July.

    In a recent interview with our sister publication Autocar Professional, Sunjay Kapur, president, Automotive Component Manufacturers Association of India (ACMA), said, “There are strong headwinds with regard to the supply chain, including the chip shortage, raw material price increases, uncertainty around logistics in terms of non-availability of containers and shipping rates going through the roof. These are the key challenges and as an industry, we need to overcome them.”
