LAHORE – Indus Motor Company (IMC) continued to give price shocks to customers as it announced the third price hike of 2023.
The assembler of Toyota-brand vehicles in South Asian country notified new prices of all its models. The auto giant justified surge by citing economic uncertainties and the extremely volatile situation of local currency.
The letter issued by the carmaker shows a massive price increase of up to Rs0.9 million. “As you are aware, economic uncertainties and the extreme volatile situation of rupee against dollar has adversely impacted the cost of manufacturing for IMC,” it said.
IMC further added that this situation has made it extremely difficult for the company to hold the current indicative retail selling prices, and therefore, we are compelled to pass on some impact to the market.
