"Rising input costs coupled with other factors like continued high exchange rate have been impacting the bottom-line, making a price revision inevitable," it added.

Commenting on the development, Mercedes-Benz India Managing Director & CEO Eberhard Kern said the company has decided to upwardly revise the prices of some of its models given the rising input costs and continued high exchange rate.

"Our aim remains to grow sustainably in the market in the long-term and keep creating new benchmarks in modern luxury for our customers," Kern added.
