Statement by TVS Motor on Proposed Insurance Premium Hike for Two-wheelers
Hosur, Tamil Nadu, India
“The automobile industry has been impacted by a series of headwinds, leading to a steady increase in two-wheeler prices. In addition to the pandemic woes, the ongoing shortage of semi-conductor chip, high raw material cost, and increasing fuel prices, have impacted demand. As the customer continues to struggle with an increase in the cost of ownership, the recently announced hike of Rs. 2,200 per vehicle in third party insurance cost will further dent the efforts of the industry to recover itself from this challenging market situation. Further, a strong domestic industry is the basis of global competitiveness and every effort must be made to have a vibrant local market,” – Mr. K N Radhakrishnan, Director and CEO, TVS Motor Company.
