Mercedes-Benz India on Friday also announced an upward revision of prices from January 15, 2021. The price correction would be in the range of 5 per cent. The company cited the weakening of the rupee against the euro and the increase in input costs as the reasons for the price hike.
Martin Schwenk, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India said, “At Mercedes-Benz we offer an enriched product portfolio with latest technology and keep introducing new product enhancements in specific models. We have been operating a sustainable and future ready business; however, a necessary price correction is required to offset the continuous rise in input and operational costs.
