Volkswagen is one of the few car manufacturers in the US refusing to endorse the Federal Government’s new fuel economy standards.
Pickup trucks first … In Obamunism and government run car companies. Never fail to take from the competition, what you can enforce by your laws, and eco-nuts.
Volkswagen AG said it could not support the CAFE proposal because it gave more leniency to big truck and SUV manufacturers and placed unfair pressure on manufacturers whose focus was passenger cars.
“The largest trucks carry almost no burden for the 2017-2020 timeframe, and are granted numerous ways to mathematically meet targets in the outlying years without significant real-world gains,” Volkswagen said in a statement.
“The proposal encourages manufacturers and customers to shift toward larger, less efficient vehicles, defeating the goal of reduced greenhouse gas emissions.”
Everybody knows the game, get Obamaunism’s money back, by any means.
