The company tells the price of one airbag is 15 thousand
Somebody asked Nitin Gadkari in Parliament, when will 6 airbags be made mandatory. Gadkari said that the government is considering this proposal. It will be implemented soon.
A few days ago, Maruti chairman RC Bhargava said that cheap vehicles will become expensive due to 6 airbags. With 6 airbags, the price of the car will increase by 60 thousand rupees.
Apart from this, some sensors and supporting accessories are installed, which together can cost Rs 1300 to install an airbag. This means that the cost of 4 airbags will be Rs 5200.
Then why the company is telling the cost of airbags as 60 thousand rupees? According to Maruti's chairman RC Bhargava, the cost of an airbag is Rs 15,000.
Cars already have 2 airbags. The cost of installing additional 4 airbags will be Rs 60. That is, the cost of 15 thousand rupees per airbag will come.
