If you wanted a new set of wheels and have been holding your horses because of steep prices; unleash them now. The reduction in excise duties on passenger vehicle announced by our government a couple of days ago are effective immediately.

Many car companies – Mahindra, Nissan, Hyundai, and Honda among others have decided to diligently pass on the benefits to the customers. They have dusted up their showrooms and are awaiting your arrival. Like I said earlier, run out with your credit cards and checkbooks.

Mahindra:

Mahindra has slashed prices from Rs 13,000 to Rs 49,000 for its passenger vehicles with immediate effect. The price of their premium SUV Ssangyong Rexton has been reduced to almost a lakh rupee (INR 92,000, to be exact).
