Japanese carmaker Nissan has officially announced a price hike for its entire range of vehicles in India, which will be effective from January 2017.
The hike in price will include the Datsun range of car models as well, and the reason for the hike in price is due to the increase in input costs.
The prices of Nissan and Datsun range of products will go up by up to Rs 30,000. Nissan has not revealed a detailed break up of the price of its models.
Arun Malhotra, the Managing Director of Nissan Motor India said,"The price increase comes as a result of rising input costs. The revision of prices will help us offset the impact of this and maintain our competitiveness in the industry."
Nissan is not the only carmaker who has announced an official price hike for its range of vehicles, since Tata Motors has also announced an official price hike, effective January 1, 2017.
