Toyota lobby is stronger, GM official complains

January 12, 2007
Outspoken General Motors Corp. Vice Chairman Robert Lutz told reporters yesterday that it is being out-muscled in Washington, D.C., by Toyota lobbyists.

Toyota, the nation’s third-largest automaker behind GM and Ford Motor Co., is treated well because its sales are rising and it has a growing number of factories in many states, Lutz said in a The New York Times story.

General Motors assembles pickup trucks in Fort Wayne and Toyota makes vans and sport-utility vehicles in Princeton.
