WASHINGTON, DC, APRIL 18, 2013 –We are pleased with today’s announcement from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) accepting a single fuel economy label for alternative fuel vehicles. Global Automakers supports a single, harmonized label for vehicles to provide clear and consistent vehicle-related information to the consumer. The Association provided comments on the proposed rule in August of 2012.


The Association of Global Automakers represents international motor vehicle manufacturers, original equipment suppliers, and other automotive-related trade associations. We work with industry leaders, legislators, and regulators to create the kind of public policy that improves vehicle safety, encourages technological innovation, and protects our planet. Our goal is to foster a competitive environment in which more vehicles are designed and built to enhance Americans’ quality of life. For more information, visit www.globalautomakers.org.
