MUMBAI – Tata Motors (NYSE:), one of India’s leading automotive manufacturers, has announced a price hike across its entire passenger vehicle range, including popular electric vehicle (EV) models such as Punch, Nexon, Tiago, Tigor, and Harrier. The revision is set at an average increase of 0.7%. The company cited rising input costs as the primary reason for this adjustment.

The new pricing is slated to take effect from February 1, reflecting a response to the economic pressures of increased costs in materials and components necessary for vehicle production. This move mirrors the broader industry trend where manufacturers are adjusting prices to manage profitability in the face of cost inflation.

Consumers planning to purchase Tata Motors’ vehicles can expect to see the revised prices implemented across the entire range of passenger cars, including the increasingly popular electric models, starting next month.

This announcement follows a period of positive growth for Tata Motors. In December, the company reported a 4% overall sales increase and a 9% rise in passenger vehicle sales year-over-year. Amidst this positive momentum, Tata Motors has also introduced the Punch EV to its lineup. The Punch EV, priced at Rs 10.99 lakh ($1 = ₹83.12), boasts an ARAI-certified range and further strengthens Tata’s position in the burgeoning Indian EV market.
