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.

Global Automakers submitted an opposition letter to Nebraska LB 627 which seeks to regulate automated vehicles. Global Automakers described LB 627 as poorly drafted and stifling to automated vehicle innovation. The bill's provisions are unworkable and would limit the testing and deployment of automated vehicles where the role of the driver may differ depending upon the design of the system.

Global Automakers submitted opposition testimony on Illinois SB 1432, the Safe Autonomous Vehicle (SAVE) Act, an unnecessarily restrictive proposal to limit who can test or operate an automated vehicle and the circumstances under which the vehicles can be tested and operated. If passed, SB 1432 would prohibit the testing of automated vehicles by entities other than motor vehicle manufacturers.
