New Delhi: Automobile major Maruti Suzuki India on Thursday announced that it will hike prices of select models with effect from January 2022.
In a regulatory filing, the company attributed the decision to increase in input costs.
“Over the past year, the cost of company’s vehicles continue to be adversely impacted due to increase in various input costs,” the company said in a statement.
