Separately, Tata Motors last week said it will increase prices of its commercial vehicle range by around 2 per cent with effect from October 1, in order to offset the impact of rising input costs.

The effective price hike, in the range of 2 per cent, will be implemented based on the model and the variant of the vehicle, the auto major said in a statement. "The continued rise in the cost of commodities, such as steel and precious metals, necessitates the company to pass on a part of it through increase in price of the products," it stated.

"Meanwhile, Jaguar Land Rover’s (JLR) order book is strong at 110,000 units, but wholesales are unable to meet demand. April-June quarter (Q1FY22) wholesales (ex CJLR) were low at around 84,000 units, and July-September (Q2) guidance is lower at around 65,000 units. Management hopes for an improvement to 90,000 units in October-December (Q3) and a further increase in January-March (Q4), led by a pick-up in semiconductor supplies," according to analysts at Emkay Global Financial Services said in Q1 result update.
