Previously, the Uttar Pradesh government charged an 8% road tax on vehicles costing less than ₹10 lakh and a 10% tax on vehicles over ₹10 lakh (ex-showroom). 

With the new policy, customers will only pay a nominal amount for strong hybrid car registration in the state. Maruti Suzuki’s hybrid models, including the Grand Vitara and Invicto, are likely to benefit from this change.
