Advanced Technologies

Our members are engaged in research and development of a full range of advanced technologies for vehicles. Continuing to develop the most fuel-efficient internal combustion engines is a top near-term priority. These technologies include the use of turbochargers with down-sized engines, cylinder deactivation during cruise modes, start-stop starter/generator systems to avoid idling, gasoline direct injection to more precisely meter fuel, and more efficient transmissions.

On January 17, Global Automakers testified before the Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee in opposition to Senate Bill 9 which would grant the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration authority for rule making to address automated and connected vehicles. Global Automakers testimony focused on the overly broad nature of the bill and expressed concern that the legislation would create uncertainty for automotive manufacturers and others who are investing heavily in the technology as well as establish a patchwork of state laws that could slow the pace of innovation.

Statement by John Bozzella, President and CEO, Global Automakers

WASHINGTON, DC, JANUARY 12, 2017 – “The Environmental Protection Agency has still failed to state a compelling reason for rushing its final determination.  It unnecessarily truncated public comment and prevented scrutiny of an important policy decision that will affect consumers, investment, public health and the environment.   This can only undermine confidence in the objectivity of policymaking.  It merits a serious look by the incoming administration.”
