- Renault will increase car prices from January 2023.
- The price hike is due to rise in input cost, fluctuations in foreign exchange rates, and inflation.
- Right now, Renault India's line-up includes the Kwid, Triber and Kiger.
Renault India has announced that it will be increasing prices across its model range from January 2023. In its statement, the company said that the reasons for the price hike are to partially offset the impact of constant increases in input costs largely driven by pricier commodities, fluctuations in foreign exchange rates, inflation, and also due to regulatory obligations. The French carmaker has not given us a specific date from when the prices will be revised nor the quantum of the price hike yet.
In its statement, the company said, “India is a key market for Renault, with a long-term strategy to grow the brand in the dynamic Indian market. Over the last few years, Renault has focused on establishing a strong base in India which includes a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, a world-class technology centre, two design centres, 500 sales and more than 500 service touchpoints.”
