“The American automotive manufacturing industry has led the way on innovation and technologies that are helping to protect our environment while also providing customers the affordable vehicles they need and want.  The industry’s commitment to improving fuel efficiency standards from 2017 through 2025 under the continued National Program represents a smart and balanced approach that also carefully considers the important impact the auto manufacturing industry has on our nation’s economy, with millions of American jobs at stake.”

"Today’s agreement is the result of all the stakeholders involved—the President, leaders in Congress, the industry—coming together to work in good faith to achieve a solution that protects a vital part of our national economy while also protecting our environment.”
