Mercedes-Benz India has announced a price hike which comes into effect from September 1, 2018. The increase would be up to 4% and is due to "geo-political dynamics, coupled with rising input costs and upward forex movement", the company said in a statement. The rupee has depreciated by more than 5% against the Euro, it added.
