WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Toyota Motor (NYSE 🙂 Corp said Saturday it would strongly oppose a proposal by the Democrats in the US House of Representatives to give union-made electric vehicles an additional $ 4,500 tax incentive in the United States.
Japan's largest automaker said the plan, unveiled late Friday, "discriminates against American auto workers for their choice not to unionize." The bill, due to be voted on Tuesday by the Democrat-led House Ways and Means Committee, would benefit Detroit's big three automakers who have unionized auto plants.
Toyota added that it "will also struggle to focus tax dollars on making all electrified vehicles accessible to American consumers who cannot afford high-priced cars and trucks."
