TOKYO, Nov 4 (Reuters) – Japan will ask the United States to be more flexible on electric vehicle (EV) purchase incentives for non-American carmakers, Kyodo news agency reported on Friday, citing unnamed government sources.
The move follows a statement from South Korea’s foreign ministry saying Seoul is seeking a three-year grace period on the U.S. Inflation Act to enable Korean automakers to continue receiving EV incentives in the United States.
