WASHINGTON — A group representing major automakers on Tuesday vowed to work with President-elect Joe Biden on efforts to reduce vehicle emissions even as the industry remains split over an effort to bar California from setting rules.
The Alliance for Automotive Innovation, representing General Motors, Volkswagen Group, Toyota Motor Corp., Ford Motor Co. and most major automakers, said after a meeting Tuesday that it “looks forward to engaging with the incoming Biden administration … to advance the shared goals of reducing emissions and realizing the benefits of an electric future.”
“The long-term future of the auto industry is electric,” Alliance CEO John Bozzella said in the statement. “We are investing hundreds of billions to develop the products that will drive this electric future, and we are committed to working collaboratively to realize the unprecedented change in infrastructure, consumer support, and grid resiliency that will be required to make our common goal a reality.”
