Mumbai, Dec 14 : Car manufacturer Volkswagen India on Thursday announced an upward price revision of up to Rs 20,000 across its product range effective from January 2018.
Volkswagen Passenger Cars' Director Steffen Knapp said: "The price increase is essential on account of several external economic factors as well as fluctuations in the global commodity price and local input cost and is in line with industry."
On Wednesday, automobile major Maruti Suzuki India said that it will increase the prices of its entire passenger vehicle range by up to two per cent from January, due to rising input costs.
"The company will go in for an upward price revision by up to 2 per cent due to rising input costs," a Maruti Suzuki India official told IANS.
