With gas prices reaching over $4 a gallon in Michigan, Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) and Rep. Gary Peters (D-Bloomfield Township) will announce legislation to help Michigan’s automakers and suppliers develop the next generation of high-tech, fuel-efficient vehicles.
On Monday morning at Bosch headquarters in Farmington Hills, Peters and Stabenow will announce their legislation at an event featuring demonstrations of the high efficiency, alternative fuel and electric vehicle technologies from Detroit’s automakers and suppliers.
The event will include at least eight advanced vehicle and technology demonstrations from Bosch, General Motors, Chrysler, Ford, Magna, Eaton, Delphi, BorgWarner, Yazaki and others – showcasing examples of technology developed with federal assistance. Vehicles will be available for media ride & drive.
Following the vehicle demonstration, Peters and Stabenow will tour Bosch’s diesel and gasoline engine engineering laboratories, where alternative energies are being tested.
The event begins at 11 a.m.
