Mahindra has announced that it will hike all passenger vehicles prices from 1st July. The cars will be costlier upto Rs 36,000 with the implementation of the new safety norms.
This price increase is due to the implementation of AIS 145 Safety Norms across all passenger vehicles in India. The implementation of AIS 145 Safety Norms from 1st July, 2019 mandate the fitment of several safety features including driver airbag, seat belt reminder for driver and co-driver, rear parking sensors and an over speed alert for the driver across all passenger vehicle models.
There will be no changes in the prices of the XUV300 & Alturas G4 as it already comes equipped with these safety features.
Rajan Wadhera, President – Automotive Sector, Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd., “At Mahindra safety has been at the core of our product development process and we welcome the regulatory requirements relating to safety upgrades. We value every road user’s life and have been effectively contributing to the evolving safety ecosystem. However, the safety regulatory requirement has led to some cost increases. Consequently, we are taking a price hike across some of our passenger vehicles, effective 1st July, 2019.”
