Global Automakers of Canada (GAC) supports the government of Quebec in its quest to develop a network of multi-fuel stations, which would help reduce fuel consumption by 40% and save a ton of greenhouse gas emissions.
GAC is not exactly warm to the idea of passing a zero-emission law, however.
“We all know that the future of transportation will be about low emissions. The issue is determining how to get there. We prefer collaboration over confrontation with governments,” said GAC president David C. Adams. “We support financial and non-financial incentives from governments along with investments in infrastructure to drive consumer demand and the presence of technologically advanced, highly efficient vehicles on the road as ways to reduce GHG emissions from transportation.”
GAC members, which are joining forces to collectively achieve a corporate average fuel consumption of 4.3L/100km by 2025, include BMW/MINI, Honda/Acura, Hyundai, Jaguar Land Rover, Kia, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz/smart, Mitsubishi, Nissan/Infiniti, Porsche, Subaru, Toyota/Lexus, Volkswagen/Audi, and Volvo.
Ferrari, Maserati, Isuzu, McLaren, and Denso are affiliate members of GAC.
