GST Impact on car prices: Full List of cars that are affected

If you have waited all this while to buy a car, you’re in luck. GST, the term so widely spoken about since the last few months has finally been rolled out. While it’s affected a lot of businesses, it has majorly affected the car industry too. There was a lot of speculation about prices increasing, decreasing across different segment of cars leading to a lot of confusion. Here’s the list of cars whose prices have been affected.

Let’s talk about the categories first. Under GST, there will be four main vehicle categories – small cars, large cars, electric vehicles and hybrids. Most vehicle categories will fall under a standard 28 percent tax rate, along with a provision to separately levy an additional variable cess on any category. The automobile sector is unlikely to see any major dip in demand, considering there has been a reduction in taxation across the board with the drop ranging from 2.25 to 12 percent, depending on the vehicle category. However, it still remains to be seen whether passenger vehicle manufacturers will pass on the entire benefit of this overall drop in taxation rate to customers. Below is the list of cars whose prices have been affected. Now these are approximate prices and it might vary at dealerships.
