The explanation

Giving the details, the car manufacturer said that the reason for the price hike was the shortage of containers due to the ongoing pandemic. This has led to increased shipping fees in addition to other input costs. This led to the company transferring the cost to the consumers.

The company reassured the people with confirmed booking order forms (PBO) that the new prices are not applied to them.

Changan Master Motor said that they are still going to maintain the promised timelines and have opened limited booking for ‘financing customers’ for deliveries to be made in July.

The company said that instead of remaining silent to the criticism, they want to get ahead of the situation and want to make their customers aware of certain developments.
