Eberhard Kern, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India commented, "Rising inputs cost, volatility of the rupee-euro, high interest rates and other associated factors have put significant pressure on us. Consequently, we are forced to share a part of this burden with our customers and we will increase prices of our vehicles to the tune of 1-3 per cent effective 14 January, 2013. However, to support the purchase decisions of our discerning customers, Mercedes-Benz Financial Services will be supporting with various finance options."
