Japanese automaker Isuzu has has rolled out a range of offers for the festive season across its model range. The offers start from as low as ₹ 50,000 on the commercial variant of the D-Max Single-Cab pick-up, going up to ₹ 2 lakh on the Isuzu MU-X SUV. The offers also extend to the other variants of the D-Max and the S-Cab commercial pickups, as well as the base variant of the V-Cross, all on the ex-showroom prices. Isuzu India says the offers translate to an approximate equivalent of 10 per cent of the taxes on these vehicles.
Capt. Shankar Srinivas, Isuzu India spokesperson said, “Isuzu would like its customers to be delighted and enter the festive season joyously. Our special offer valid until 31st October 2019, would excite our prospective customers to continue their focus on their business with added fervor and also bring excitement to their homes during the festive season."
While sales offers around the festive are usual and help capitalise on the overall buying sentiment, this year, the offers and benefits matter more than ever as the auto industry is stuck in its worst ever crisis in nearly two decades. The benefits are only expected to help carmakers improve volumes while also clear the BS4 inventory ahead of the April 2020, to shift to BS6 norms.
Auto manufacturers have also been requesting the government a temporary reduction in GST rates to bring back the buying sentiment. However, the government did introduce a corporate tax reduction, bringing down overall corporate taxes to 25.17 per cent from 30 per cent. It is expected that carmakers will pass on the benefit to customers by lowering car prices in the coming weeks.
Prospective customers can reach out to Isuzu dealerships pan India to know the complete offers and benefits on the company's model range.
