GM Recalls 7 Million Vehicles over Airbags, Will End Support for Lower Fuel Efficiency

HeadlineNov 24, 2020

General Motors is recalling some 7 million pickup trucks and SUVs worldwide to replace potentially dangerous air bags. This comes after the U.S. government ordered GM to recall the vehicles, which GM maintains are safe to drive.

Meanwhile, the automaker has withdrawn support for the Trump administration’s years-long efforts to block California from establishing its own fuel efficiency standards. The New York Times reports GM’s move signals the company is ready to work with President-elect Joe Biden in reducing climate-warming emissions from cars and trucks.
