Tata Motors will hike price of its cheapest car Tata Nano by Rs. 9000 from Nov 01. The vehicle maker said in a statement the price rise was to partially neutralise the steep increase in input costs in the last two years.

“Tata Motors is taking a minor price increase on the Tata Nano, effective from November 1, to partially neutralise the steep increase in input costs in the last two years. The average increase is about Rs. 9,000 (ex-showrooms), with prices varying from city to city and model to model,” the company said in a statement.

So far Tata Motors has increased the rate of Nano only for one time. In July, 2010, company has hiked the Nano’s price ranging between Rs. 3,700 and Rs. 6,894 (based on ex-showroom, Delhi prices).

The company has tied up with 39 banks, NBFC, cooperative and grameen banks to offer customers with loans for purchasing the Tata Nano at attractive rates of interest. More such arrangements are in process. As a result of these tie-ups, the Tata Nano can be owned at an EMI of less than Rs 3,000.
