Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd (ETCM), the sole distributor of Nissan in Malaysia, said the price hike was mainly due to the weakened ringgit, which has hampered operational costs.
In a statement, the company said it was among the last auto companies to increase prices.
"Over the past months despite severe pressure from a weakened ringgit, we have has implemented necessary measures to reduce the impact," said ETCM executive director Datuk Ang Bon Beng.
“We have always strive to offer affordable pricing," he added.
The price hikes apply to four locally assembled Nissan cars, namely the Almera (RM3,734 to RM4,610 depending on variant), Grand Livina (RM3,125 to RM6,225), X-Gear (RM4,073) and Teana (RM3,715 to RM4,800).
Prices for Serena S-Hybrid, X-Trail, NP300 Navara and NV200 are unchanged.
