IMC registers huge decline in sales, profits in Q1 FY2023

The price of Hilux Revo G 2.8 has been jacked up by Rs670,000 to Rs9,839,000. The cost of the Hilux E has risen from Rs8,449,000 to Rs9,069,000, a surge of Rs620,000.

The biggest increase was seen in the price of Hilux Revo G Automatic 2.8, which will now be available at Rs10,309,000 after an increase of Rs700,000.

A notification to dealers said reasons for the price increase are higher raw material cost and significant surge in the vendor’s cost of production.

“Due to economic uncertainties and spike in raw material cost, the vendors’ cost of production has significantly increased,” the company stated in the notice.

“In addition, uncertainties in forex fluctuations, increase in utilities and overheads have also impacted the cost of manufacturing for IMC. Thus, this situation has made it extremely difficult for IMC to hold the current retail selling prices and therefore, we are compelled to pass on some impact to the market,” it added.

Even at these prices, they are selling cars made from cheap material and mostly plastic. look at Yaris, try to smell the arm console of a corolla it smells like recycled plastic! The price is not in line with $ and even at this price, there is no value for money.

It seems that IMC intentionally loosing business in favour of their competitors. The reasons of increasing prices is neither justified nor acceptable to prevailing market. Frequently increase in prices by IMC will definitely compel its customers to adopt other options instead of long time waiting and paying additional amounts again and again.
