Statement on “Driving America Forward Act,” a Bipartisan Bill to Expand Electric Vehicle and Hydrogen Fuel Cell Tax Credits


“We commend Senators Stabenow and Alexander and Congressman Kildee for their leadership on this critical issue,” said Dave Schwietert, Interim President & CEO, Auto Alliance. “This bipartisan bill will help drive deployment and consumer acceptance of these energy-efficient, alternative powertrains. Automakers are investing substantially in electric vehicles, with 58 models on sale and more coming, but overall sales remain low. Consumer tax incentives and rebates, as well as charging infrastructure, are key building blocks to help get more of these energy-efficient vehicles on our roadways.”
