U.S. Senators ask Obama to stop China from stealing American EV secrets
Well, that doesn't sit well with Michigan's two U.S. Senators, who have both urged the Obama administration to prevent China from requiring automakers to dole out their advanced vehicle technology secrets. Democrats Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow want the U.S. Trade Representative to step in and block Chinese regulations on plug-in vehicles and other auto-related technologies. According to the Detroit News, the Senators say that the regulations could "prevent U.S. automakers from accessing the Chinese market."
On April 22nd, China's new-energy vehicles plan, which supposedly contains info on foreign automakers and the divulging of plug-in technology secrets, was submitted to the country's State Council for final approval.
