The Association of Global Automakers Statement on California's Clean Cars 2040 Act AB 1745

“Automakers are committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in our vehicle fleet and have made huge investments in green technologies. More than 35 models of battery, plug-in hybrid, and fuel cell electric vehicles are available to consumers today, and more are introduced each year. While we are still evaluating this proposal, California has laid out another ambitious goal that will unfortunately be unachievable unless the state substantially increases and maintains public investment in incentives and infrastructure.  A self-sustaining market, based on consumer demand for green technologies, will be much more powerful and long-lasting than government mandates or regulations.”
