The prices of Toyota Yaris, Corolla and IMV variants have been surged by the Indus Motor Company (IMC). They have been surged in the range of Rs120,000 to Rs500,000 due to rupee depreciation against the US dollar.
A notification sent by the company to its dealers stated, “This sudden rise in the exchange rate has resulted in an increase in cost of completely knocked down (CKD) units and local parts along with a hike in prices to our vendors. Thus, this situation has made it extremely difficult for IMC to hold the current retail selling prices and therefore, we are compelled to pass on a part of this impact on the market.”
