Why the prices are increasing
Not only Mercedes Benz, giants like Maruti Suzuki India, Hyundai Motors, Nissan, Mahindra, Ford and Volkswagen have also announced a hike in car prices. Companies claim that the prices of raw materials for the manufacture of cars are constantly increasing. Due to this, making cars is also expensive and due to this, a decision has been taken to increase the prices.
