Automakers React to U.S. EPA’s New Emissions Limits

The Biden administration has proposed strict new automobile emission limits that would require up to two-thirds of new vehicles sold in the U.S. to be electric by 2032. The AP reports this would represent a ten-fold increase over current EV sales.

The Alliance for Automotive Innovation — a trade group representing Honda, GM, Stellantis, and other automakers — raised several questions in this statement regarding the EPA’s plan. The Alliance said the new proposal exceeds the Biden administration’s 50% EV sales target for 2030 announced less than two years ago. 4/12/2023
