Automakers Hope to Reach U.S. Deal on 2025 Vehicle Emissions

Submitted by on April 13, 2017 – 11:35 amNo Comment

by David Shepardson (Reuters) A trade group for automakers said on Tuesday it hopes to reach a deal with California and the Trump administration over vehicle fuel efficiency standards.

Mitch Bainwol, chief executive of the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, a trade group representing General Motors Co (GM.N), Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T), Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE) and others, said at a forum ahead of the New York auto show that automakers were not seeking a rollback of existing standards.

“What we want is rational, predictable, stable policy,” he said. Automakers hope “that over time responsible parties will come together and have an honest conversation about what the data is.”

The Obama administration’s rules, negotiated with automakers in 2011, were aimed at doubling average fleet-wide fuel efficiency to 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025. Under the 2011 deal, the 2022-2025 model year rules must be finalized by April 2018.

“The talk the of rollback is fallacious. What we are talking here is the nature of the slope,” Bainwol said. “We will get to the Obama numbers (54.5 mpg). We will get beyond the Obama numbers. The question is when and how.”  READ MORE / MORE and MORE (The Washington Post)
