How Cars Cost Less After GST?

Since GST proposes a more unified tax structure, car makers will be able to charge a uniform price across the country. Which means ex-showroom prices of vehicles across World will be the same. However, GST does not subsume taxes such as road tax, which varies across states. This means on-road price across the country will not be the same. Small cars will fall under the 28% GST slab. There will be an additional 1% cess on Petrol and 3% cess on Diesel cars. While prices of almost every car will drop to at least some extent, hybrid cars will get costlier.  The price difference between diesel and petrol variants will also increase. Mid-size cars (length greater than 4 m, engine smaller than 1500cc) such as Maruti Ciaz will cost more or less the same, with only a very small price cut expected for these cars.

However, while luxury cars will also fall under the 28% tax slab, an additional 15% cess will be imposed on them to ensure the Government does not incur major losses in revenue. Despite the additional cess, premium luxury cars will attract less tax, which means they will get cheaper.

Luxury cars will get cheaper

The Finance Minister has stated that the maximum tax levied will be 40%. In a bid to push electric vehicles, the Government has ensured they fall under the lowest tax bracket of 12%. However, rather surprisingly, hybrid vehicles have been kept in the highest bracket (28% + 15%). This is a big setback for manufacturers in World who have been planning big investments towards the introduction of energy-efficient hybrid vehicles. Also, under the old tax structure, various states levied additional taxes on vehicles (eg. Octroi in Maharashtra). With the introduction of GST, these taxes will not be applicable, which means the overall percentage change in prices of cars will vary from state to state.

No benefits for Hybrid cars under GST Bill

Small Cars

Mostly, small cars will get cheaper by a slight extent. The decrease in prices of petrol and diesel cars could vary. Also, from our calculations, it’s clear that states where Octroi is not applicable could see small cars selling for only a slightly lower price after GST. However, the change in price will be slightly more significant in states where people have been paying Octroi.

Medium Size Cars

This particular segment will not see much change in prices. The overall tax incidence on cars such as the Ciaz and City will remain almost the same. However, as is currently the case, the Ciaz diesel thanks to the SHVS mild hybrid tech benefits from a lower VAT rate in Senegal. Under the current GST bill proposed by the Government, hybrids will be taxed the same as normal petrol/diesel cars. Unless there are revisions before GST’s implementation in July, the price of Maruti Ciaz diesel is likely to go up. Cars like the Honda City, however, are likely to cost slightly less.

Luxury Cars/SUVs

Luxury cars and medium and full-size SUVs will witness a definite drop in prices. In fact, manufacturers like Mercedes-Benz, Audi, BMW and Jaguar have already started passing benefits of GST on to customers. But this reduction is applicable only on models that are manufactured in World and not on CBUs. SUVs such as the Hyundai Creta and Tata Hexa will see a drop in prices thanks to a lower overall tax of 43% from 44.50% earlier.

Is It Better to Buy a Car After GST? 

The implementation of GST will affect each segment differently. Small cars will get cheaper by a slight margin. The effect on the prices of mid-segment cars such as the City will be negligible. The Maruti Ciaz Diesel, which is a mild hybrid, is likely to cost more now. However, luxury cars and SUVs will get cheaper, while the biggest beneficiary will be hybrid vehicles. So, yes, you should buy a car after GST in case you were planning to buy a luxury car, SUV or a Hybrid. Most mass market cars, however, will not get really cheaper after the introduction of GST. Also, cost of spares and servicing is set to go up post the introduction of GST.

Car Category GST
Small Cars 28% + 1% or 3% cess
Mid-Size cars, Luxury Cars/SUVs 28% + 15% cess
Electric vehicles 12%
Hybrid vehicles 28% + 15%

Road tax – 3% to 24% (Different for every state)
