Statement on the “Vehicle Innovation Act,” Bipartisan Legislation to Promote Investments in Research and Development of Clean Vehicle and Advanced Safety Technologies


“We commend Senators Gary Peters, Debbie Stabenow, and Lamar Alexander – as well as Representatives Debbie Dingell and Haley Stevens for reintroducing the Vehicle Innovation Act,” said Dave Schwietert, Interim President & CEO, Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers. “This bipartisan legislation will support the critical research and development of transformative clean vehicle technologies to enhance vehicle fuel efficiency and will help ensure U.S. based automakers remain leaders in the global race to develop and deploy these cutting-edge vehicle technologies. Most importantly, the Vehicle Innovation Act will benefit our customers, who want cleaner, affordable, more energy-efficient vehicles and the 10 million Americans who depend on the auto sector for their paychecks.”
