Mercedes-Benz India today announced an upward revision of the price of its model range effective January 15, 2021. The imminent price correction would be in the range of 5 per cent, across model range. The company cites the weakening of the Indian currency compared to the euro since the past six to seven months, combined with an increase in input costs, have resulted in a significant pressure on the overall costs.
