After careful deliberation, Tata Motors has upped the prices of all of its cars by a fair margin. As promised by the Indian automaker, those that booked their cars prior to May 8 will not have to pay a dime extra. In the past several months, automakers all across the country have been facing an ever-increasing acquisitional cost of raw materials. The list includes items like steel (and other precious metals) and plastics. Moreover, Tata Motors (along with other brands) have been under duress since the start of the pandemic last year. This has further caused chaos across carmakers’ logistic chain, hence raising overheads.
In the case of Tata Motors, the company has had to increase the price of all of its cars sold in India. The Tiago remains the most affordable car that Tata sells, and it had a price tag of between Rs 4.85 Lakh and Rs 6.85 Lakh. However, that was before the new price hike. Now, the Tiago costs between Rs 5.00 Lakh and Rs 6.96 Lakh – equating to a hike of up to Rs 15,000. Meanwhile, the Tata Togor used to cost from Rs 5.50 Lakh to Rs 7.64 Lakh, but it has now been subjected to a hike of Rs 10,000. This subcompact sedan, therefore, now has a price tag of between Rs 5.60 Lakh to Rs 7.74 Lakh.
When it comes to the Altroz, Tata has hiked its price by up to Rs 11,000 (depending on the variant). The premium hatchback now costs between Rs 5.80 Lakh and Rs 9.56 Lakh. Meanwhile, the Tata Nexon sees a price hike of up to Rs 16,000 (depending on the variant). Where it used to cost between Rs 7.10 Lakh and Rs 12.80 Lakh, the subcompact crossover now goes for between Rs 7.20 Lakh and Rs 12.96 Lakh. However, do note that Tata Motors has not increased the price of the Nexon EV, which continues to cost between Rs 13.99 Lakh and Rs 16.40 Lakh.
Coming to the most expensive offerings from Tata Motors – the Harrier and Safari – prices have gone up by up to Rs 37,000. Before the hike, the Tata Harrier used to cost between Rs 14.00 Lakh to Rs 20.45 Lakh, though that range now hovers between Rs 14.30 Lakh to Rs 20.82 Lakh. Meanwhile, the new Tata Safari remains at the top of the pecking order. The SUV used to cost from Rs 14.69 Lakh to Rs 21.45 Lakh, though the revision sees the prices going up by up to Rs 36,000. This means that the Safari’s price now ranges between Rs 14.99 Lakh and Rs 21.81 Lakh. Note that all the prices mentioned here are ex-showroom, Delhi.
