Tata Motors announced that it will be increasing the prices of its commercial vehicles by 5 per cent starting from April 1, 2023. The decision to increase prices is a result of the company’s efforts to comply with the more stringent BS6 phase II emission norms. As Tata Motors transitions its entire vehicle portfolio to meet these standards, customers and fleet owners can expect a range of cleaner, greener, and technologically superior offerings that deliver higher benefits and lower total cost of ownership, the company said. The price increase will be applied across the entire range of commercial vehicles, with the exact amount varying according to the individual model and variant.
