As previously discussed, suppliers have a critical role in the design, engineering, testing and manufacturing of advanced technologies for use in vehicles and accordingly suppliers must be specifically included in the Advanced Automotive Technology Advisory Committee (AATAC).

Furthermore, the 35 percent threshold specified in ((a) (c) (1)) for inclusion of a technology on the Monroney label is too high. Collision avoidance systems currently available in new vehicles should be required to be listed as part of the NCAP rating on all new vehicle labels that include the technology.

MEMA does support the language as drafted requiring the label to indicate if a vehicle is not equipped with such technology.

Title V, Section 502

MEMA supports awarding credits for advanced technologies for Greenhouse Gas emissions. The use of these technologies will result in better traffic flow, less fuel consumed and few vehicle emissions.

However, there should not be a difference in credits for vehicles with at least three advanced vehicle technologies (three or more grams per mile) and vehicles with one connected vehicle technology (six or more grams per mile).

Advanced automotive technologies are now active and available in the marketplace, and a vehicle with at least three of these technologies is actively working to improve that vehicle’s performance, using less fuel and reducing emissions. Connected vehicle technology, including Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) systems exist, but are not in use in the vehicle fleet.


MEMA thanks the Committee for its foresight in working to provide greater consumer acceptance of ADAS technologies. The industry is committed to working with Congress to establish new and innovative ways to increase the adoption of these lifesaving technologies and to address other critical safety concerns.

«Investment and the Weighted Average Cost of Capital Murray Z. Frank and Tao Shen∗ January 19, 2015 Abstract In a standard q-theory model, corporate investment is negatively related to the cost of capital. Empirically, we find that the weighted average cost of capital matters for corporate investment. The form of the impact depends on how the cost of equity is measured. When the capital asset pricing model is used, firms with a high cost of equity invest more. When the implied cost of...»
