Car makers hope to reach American deal on 2025 vehicle emissions

Car makers hope to reach American deal on 2025 vehicle emissions

On Tuesday, a trade group for car makers told it really hopes to reach a long-awaited deal with California as well as the Trump administration over vehicle fuel efficiency standards.

Mitch Bainwol, chief executive of the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, a trade group, which represents Toyota Corporation, General Motors Corporation, Volkswagen AG as well as other car makers, told at a forum ahead of the New York car show that car makers weren’t seeking a rollback of currently existing standards.

In March, Donald Trump ordered a review of American car fuel-efficiency standards from 2022-2025 imposed by the previous Obama administration, telling they were extremely tough on the car industry.

However, California opposed weakening the rules, and even threatened to adhere to tougher standards whatever happens. New York joined California’s initiative.

The White House actually intends to hold talks with car makers and also California. Obviously, a deal would finally remove uncertainty for car makers, who require years of lead time to engineer models and demand uniform rules across all 50 states.
