Hyundai car prices

MUMBAI: South Korea’s Hyundai Motor Co plans to raise the prices of its car models in India by up to INR 30,000 ($448.60) starting in January, its local unit said, citing challenging market conditions. “We are constrained to consider the price increase on account of factors like increase in cost of components, weak Indian rupee, etcetera,” Rakesh Srivastava, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Hyundai Motor India Ltd, said. Hyundai’s plans come a week after German carmaker BMW said it would raise the prices of its BMW- and Mini-branded cars sold in India by up to three per cent starting next year.
