Hi !!

TATA has also announced that there would be price cuts on the Indica range but they havent yet disclosed the new prices.

Palio missed by a whisker ......... and again is on the receiving side as always .. it missed by only 42 CC.

Sorry ... i dont think Indica petrol would see price reduction bcoz its petrol engine is 1400 CC however Indica Diesel also being 1400 CC and less than the FM's criteria of less than 1500 CC diesel unit and length, expect it to see price cut as and when TATA declares.

Default How about Fusion as a small car ....

Ford Fusion current length 4018 mm.
With bumper redesign and a 1.4 Diesel would fit post-budget small car definition.
Would make it enticing .....

I doubt if Ford will launch a revision of the Fusion just to provide a 15-20K benefit to customers...

Hi! all
as some one said car companies have already increased the prices in jan now they will reduce it jan levels. further the discounts they are offereing are going to be out for some time till the dust settles. for example on wagon R u get Rs 38K cash discount in bangalore prior to budget. i do not know wheather they are going to give the same now. the reduction due to excise cut is only 23 K. but one has to add another 10% of it, i.e 2300 in road tax( in southern states it is 10%) and also reduction in insurance.
further car companies are totally silent in excise cut on steel and alloys( the reason for jan increase in prices) excise on steel and alloys cut form 12.5 to 7.5%. similarly customs duty was also cut. so almost all cars have to show some reduction. but they do not do. anyone remembers car companies reducing the prices after VAT ( except TATA) due to VAT they saved lot but did not pass it on to customers.

You are absolutely right. In fact I said the same earlier on this thread as well. They will show a massive drop in the prices of the cars (WagonR, drop=21k-23k) and hence withdraw all promotional freebies and discounts. Actually the benefits will be much less now that the things get official. Also, rest assured that other reductions like those on steel and plastics (2 major components in cars) will never even be talked about. And even this reduction will go in the next half-yearly revision which nowadays happens so predictably.

Tata Indica cars turn cheaper
Wednesday, 01 March , 2006, 16:53

Mumbai: Tata Motors Ltd. said it had cut prices of its Indica models by up to Rs 23,558 ($532) from Wednesday following a reduction in excise duty in the federal budget.

Prices of the diesel variant of the Indica hatchback have been cut by Rs 17,880 to Rs 22,405 and prices of the petrol variant have been cut by Rs 17,000 to Rs 23,558, a spokeswoman said. | Railway Budget 2006 |

“The price cuts on the Indica petrol models were made even though they do not fit the description of a small car as detailed by the Finance Minister”, she added.

Indica's petrol engine has a 1.4-litre capacity, compared to the 1.2-litre capacity stipulated for the excise duty cut. |More news on India Budget 2006|

Finance Minister on Tuesday proposed to lower the excise duty on small cars to 16 per cent from 24 per cent.

Shares of Tata Motors rose 3.6 per cent to Rs 843.50 on Wednesday, off an all-time high of Rs 855 in a firm market.

I personally feel that finance ministry should not have gone down to define what fits in small car segment and what dosnt. PC's argument is india will become hub for small car manufacture and also due space and fuel constraint.

Some companies have expressed that, this is going tilt the balance in the competition between small and big cars, or atleast for the companies which manufacture them. The definition looks specifically designed for the maruti.

Exclamation

I heard there is a 23,000 rupee price cut for the Santro xing because of the 8% reduction in Excise. If so, was someone paying 2.5 LAKHS as excise duty alone for a Santro???

How did you calculate that figure? Man this is daylight robbery! And we critise car makers for high prices of products! No wonder the Laura's and Passats have 18 lacs and 28 lacs price tags. Still the point is, I dont mind paying these high taxes if I am getting top class infrastructure in return. Excise, customs, FBT, road tolls, education cess, earthquake relif tax, cess on petrol and diesel and after all this we are stuck in mile long traffic jams on roads that make the surface of the moon seem like a smooth German autobahn.
