Global Automakers joined the Edison Electric Institute (EEI), Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers (Alliance), American Public Power Association (APPA), and National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) on a letter to EPA and DOT requesting that any upcoming proposal for greenhouse gas and Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards take comment on flexibilities that focus on technology adoption. The group noted that such action would "allow automakers and states to maximize the
benefits of increased electric transportation."
