Mercedes Benz car prices to increase from January

New Year will bring in new prices for the Mercedes Benz cars! Mercedes Benz India has officially announced that it will revise all its car prices that will come into effect from January 2013. The major reason behind this hike in price is due to hostile exchange rates, hiked input costs and soaring inflation.Because of huge increase in cost, it has become necessary for Mercedes Benz to elevate the prices of its car models. It was becoming difficult for the firm to absorb all the pressure from the cost escalations. This was the reason given by the MD and CEO of Mercedes Benz India, Mr. Eberhard Kern. He also stated that that some huge investment has been done in India and to maintain the growth of the firm, dealer partners and employees, this revision of prices was essential.
