Renault has officially announced an increase in price for its existing range of products in India. The company has attributed the price hike to ‘swelling input costs, which have driven up the cost of components’.
The Renault Duster, which recently crossed the one lakh units-sold milestone with a celebratory limited edition, will now be sold at a price one per cent higher than its earlier cost. Renault’s Scala and Pulse join the popular SUV with a similar price hike.
It’s too early to say predict if the fact that the cars are now a few thousand rupees dearer than before, will affect their sales. We will watch out for new updates in their respective segments and keep you apprised.
