Jaguar Land Rover to hike prices by 4 per cent on a few offerings.

  • Increase in price will be applicable from 1 April at all JLR showrooms across India.

  • Currently, JLR locally assembles cars such as the XE, XF, XJ, F-Pace, Evoque and Discovery Sport.

  • Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz also expected to announce price hike ahead of 2019-20 fiscal year.

  • Jaguar Land Rover has announced a price hike of 4 per cent on select range of its models. It will be applicable from 1 April 2019 and is a result of inflation, according to the company.

    Jaguar Land Rover  had officially revealed the second-gen Evoque late last year, more than eight years after the first generation SUV debuted. The British carmaker has not made any statement yet, but is expected to bring it to our shores this year. Featuring comprehensive updates, the 2019 Range Rover Evoque is expected to be priced at a premium in comparison to the current model which retails for Rs 52.05 lakh to Rs 61.93 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

    JLR will not just focus on SUVs, but is expected to refresh its entry-level sedan, the XE as well. The Jaguar XE facelift looks a lot sharper than the current version and receives more high-tech features as well. Engine options will continue to remain unchanged with a 2.0-litre petrol and diesel on offer. Jaguar has already started selling the updated XE in the UK and is expected to launch it in India by the end of this year. Its prices are expected to witness a slight increase.

    Rival luxury carmakers such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi are also expected to make a formal price hike announcement soon.

    For more details regarding the price increase, here’s JLR’s official statement.
