No mention of any price increase, have they launched at current price? If so it can be viewed as a slight price correction by Mahindra.

I believe XUV 300 base BS-IV Petrol price was 8.1. Now with BS-6 it is 8.3. So, an increase of INR 20k for the BS6 upgradation.

For all the hue & cry raised by the OEMs earlier, these BS6 price increases (for petrols) have indeed been fair & reasonable. IMHO, it's the habit of manufacturers to cry over any new regulation, but it's the duty of the government to enforce (as they have rightly done) .

Even for diesels, the BS6 price hikes are going to be far more reasonable than the "100,000" premium loosely thrown around in interviews. Heck, the Seltos is so well-priced and its diesel is already BS6. Will be expensive only for the big diesels used in luxury cars though as they need the AdBlue fluid.

Most manufacturers did it to push prospective customers over the edge by the fear of the price increase in a very dull market.
And its the same reason why they cannot overcharge after complying with BS6, the market may not be too kind to them.
All in all, good for us

Just for good measure Toyota said Rs 5-6L increase for a Innova BS6 Diesel. Wonder why these companies dont realise that Public sab jaanti hi. In the Creta-Seltos segment the price ceiling is sort of set by Seltos and now there is no need for anyone to posture on quantum of price increase.

Not unless they're planning to buy parts from Lexus!

I read in the VW Dieselgate book that it would have cost VW merely $400 or so to make their diesels meet California's strict emission laws. That's just Rs 28,000 at the factory level (will be higher at retail).
