With the New Year just around the corner, the leading automakers Hyundai, Ford and Toyota are at it again this time gearing up with steep year-end promotional discounts on both petrol and diesel models to woo the Indian buyers.
December promises to be an exciting month, not just for the buyers, but also for the car makers as they embark upon promotions to find the middle path between loss and profit as a result of the increase in production costs.
Typically, the car sales during the end of the year increase, as buyers look forward to a new beginning by revving on their vehicles in the New Year. Hence, to enhance the sales, auto majors like Ford, Hyundai, Toyota and Tata have plunged in for aggressive market-share grabbing – promotions by offering good exchange offers besides other benefits as they try disposing their old stock and stabilising their recently launched cars.
For buyers, this is indeed a good time to drive home their dream cars since the discounts range between ₹50,000 ₹to 1 lakh.
