Consumer and environmental groups reacted strongly to the NHTSA's announcement.

"Congress and the administration would be making a serious mistake in rolling back the standards," said Jack Gillis, the Consumer Federation of America's public affairs director, suggesting "it would put the U.S. car companies at a disadvantage, both nationally and globally, in competing with ... foreign manufacturers ... quite capable of complying with the standards."

"Even hinting at freezing these popular standards is a bad idea," said the Sierra Club's associate director Andrew Linhardt, "so of course Trump is proposing to pump the breaks at the expense of the American people just to pad the pockets of big oil and auto executives."
