Let us get into the details of the new car invoice price.

What is the New Car Invoice?

The new car invoice price is mentioned in the document and the other details like the breakup of the price of the car are also there in the document. The car buying invoice is nothing but a document that the car dealer gives to you requesting payment from you for the car. Also, the amount that is mentioned in the invoice is exactly the amount that you need to pay before you take the delivery of your car.

To understand the new car invoice price details, you need to have in-depth knowledge regarding the various components of the car buying invoice.

Ex-showroom price

The ex-showroom price of the car is the price that has been fixed by the manufacturer of the car. The price is inclusive of the costs of manufacturing, the logistics and transportation charges, the margins of the dealer, and the taxes such as GST that have been levied on the car.

Charges for vehicle registration

This includes the amount of money that has been paid to the RTO(Regional Transport Office) which includes the RC charges and the road tax paid.

Car insurance policy premium

Buying three-year third-party insurance for the four-wheeler is mandatory as per Indian law when you purchase a new vehicle. However, opting for comprehensive four-wheeler insurance is ideal as it comes with a third-party and own-damage cover.

Additional expenses

If you choose to purchase accessories or any other services like roadside assistance or extended warranty, etc. from the dealer, then you have to pay some extra charges. A FASTTag has become compulsory for all cars and thus, if you choose to buy a tag from the dealer, you will have to pay the charges.

On-road price

The on-road price is the final value of the car that you pay just before you drive your car on the road. It is a sum of all the costs that have been mentioned above.

The new car invoice price is the total of all the prices that are mentioned above.

Typically, when you purchase a car from the dealer, you will be provided with a new car invoice which will include all the details that you need. It is a document that will mention the price that you need to take your car home. The car invoice is generated once the car and the variant that you need are available at the store. You have to verify the invoice and make the payment to the dealer.

How to Find the Dealer New Car Invoice Prices?

Finding the invoice cost for new cars is not tough. It is the on-road or the final price of the car that you need to pay. Below given are some of the ways to understand the dealer’s invoice cost for new cars:

  • If you plan to purchase a new car, you might wish to understand the invoice price of the car before you book the car. In this case, you can simply go to the showroom and ask for the new car invoice pricing guide. The dealer will then provide a quotation for the car to you which will include the price of the dealer.

How are the New Car Invoice Prices Generated?

The new vehicle invoice price is nothing but the final price that you need to pay for the car. This price is also known as the on-road value of the car and it is the final amount that you need to pay to take your car from the showroom.

The calculation of the new car invoice price is mentioned below:

On-road value/price of the car = Ex-showroom value of the car + Charges of registration + Car Insurance Premium + Additional Charges

In short, the invoice cost for new cars is the added sum of the ex-showroom value of the car, any charges for RC and road taxes, insurance premium price, and any additional expenses. The additional expenses are dependent on the additional services and accessories that you buy.
