Detroit To Participate In Japan’s ‘Cash For Clunkers’
As if Japan hadn’t done enough damage during the US Government’s CARS program, the country recently decided to try it’s own, more exclusive version of the incentive. Initially, buyers of imports would not be eligible for the rebates. This would limit sales to Japanese made cars. In an effort to benefit from the stimulus, Detroit has put pressure on Japan to allow American cars to qualify for the program. Their efforts have been fruitful, and Japan agreed on Tuesday to allow Japanese shoppers to buy certain U.S. vehicles and still receive tax break. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s emissions results will be used to determine eligibility of American cars to participate in the Japanese Program.
