WASHINGTON, April 11 (Reuters) - The chair of the Senate Banking Committee on Thursday urged President Joe Biden to block Chinese-made vehicles from the United States auto market, marking the strongest call yet for action against China's automakers by a U.S. lawmaker.

"I implore you to take bold, aggressive action and to permanently ban EVs produced by Chinese companies or whatever subsidiaries they establish to conceal their origins," Senator Sherrod Brown, a Democrat, wrote on Thursday to Biden calling for "expeditious" action. "Chinese electric vehicles are an existential threat to the American auto industry."

The White House did not immediately comment on Thursday.

In March, Biden said that China's policies "could flood our market with its vehicles, posing risks to our national security" and that he would "not let that happen on my watch."

Wait a sec. Some state govt legislation calling for a percentage of EV’s to be sold by 2035 are no good because ‘people don’t want electric,’ but we’re afraid foreign EV’s are going to crush our automobile industry?

When Datsun & Toyota started selling cars over here that got better gas mileage and lasted for more miles
with fewer repairs than American made automobiles. The competition just made our engineers smarter
so we could sell more cars.
