Autos Drive America Statement on the North American Leaders’ Summit

November 18, 2021

WASHINGTON D.C. – Statement By Jennifer Safavian, President and CEO, Autos Drive America

“Today’s meeting between the United States, Mexico, and Canada serves as a valuable reminder of the importance of this trilateral trading relationship. The expansion of international automakers’ operations in the United States, which today builds nearly half of all cars and trucks made here and supports over 2.3 million American jobs, can be credited in part to an integrated North American automotive market. With growing concerns from our trading partners over the discriminatory electric vehicle tax credit in the Build Back Better Act, President Biden needs to oppose policies that strain relationships with our allies. The United States should enact policies that will benefit the climate, provide a level playing field that leads to expanded competition and consumer choice with electric vehicles, and be consistent with the recently enacted United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.”
