At present, the company is working out the range, a company official said.

"The cost of company's vehicles has been impacted adversely due to increase in commodity prices and foreign exchange rates," Maruti Suzuki India said in a regulatory filing.

It further said, "Hence, it has become imperative for the company to pass on some impact of the above additional cost to customers through a price increase across various models in January 2019."

This price increase shall vary for different models, it added.

At present, Maruti Suzuki sells a range of vehicles starting from entry-level Alto800 to the premium crossover S-Cross priced between Rs 253,000 and Rs 1.45 million.

On Tuesday, utility vehicle maker Isuzu Motors India Tuesday said it will hike prices of vehicles by up to Rs 100,000 from January to offset increasing input and distribution costs.

Last month, Toyota Kirloskar Motor had announced that it would increase prices of vehicles across models by up to 4 per cent from January 1, 2019, to offset increasing manufacturing costs due to rupee depreciation.
