Indus Motor Company (IMC) on Tuesday gave a massive price shock of up to Rs1.257 million, with the new retail prices effective on all new orders booked from March 23.

The company attributed the latest hike to sudden devaluation of Pakistani rupee, massive increase in prices of commodities and freight which pushed up the rates of completely-knocked down kits and local parts cost along with the increase in prices to the company’s vendors.

Other assemblers are also likely to follow suit shortly.

In a circular to its authorised dealers, the company said the situation has made it extremely difficult for the company to hold the current retail selling prices, thus compelling it to pass on some impact to the market.

The highest increase has been witnessed in Toyota Fortuner Legender whose prices soared to Rs12.099 million from Rs10.842 million while the new price of Fortuner LO Petrol, Fortuner High Petrol and Fortuner Diesel are Rs9.499m, Rs10.949m and Rs11.489m, up by Rs930,000, Rs1.008m and Rs1.097m, respectively.

By increasing the price by Rs287,000 to Rs324,000, the new rates of Toyota Yaris 1.3MT, 1.3CVT, 1.3 HMT, 1.3 HCVT, 1.5MT and 1.5CVT are Rs2,899m, Rs3.109m, Rs3.059m, Rs3.229m, Rs3.289m and Rs3.499m, respectively.
