Trump Steel and Aluminium Products Tariffs Lead to Higher Prices of Imported Japanese Cars

According to foreign media reports, the Japanese auto maker lobbying group warned that as President Trump implements new tariff policies on imported steel and aluminum products(Aluminum coated coil 1100-O), the price of Japanese cars will rise, but it is too early to disclose the increase. How much will it be?
The Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA) said on Thursday that the association is still waiting for the United States to implement tariff exemption policies for countries other than Canada and Mexico.

Hiroto Saikawa, president of JAMA and chairman of Nissan Motors, said that the US’s imposition of new tariffs on imported steel and aluminum products(3003 aluminum coil on sale) will undoubtedly push up the prices of all imported Japanese cars. He said at a press conference: "If tariffs are to be imposed, then all car companies will raise the prices of their products. I don't think this will have a good impact."

Despite facing many opposition from Republican colleagues and the U.S. business community, Trump said last week that it will impose tariffs of 25% and 10% on imported steel and aluminum products, respectively.

Trump stated that before the results of the NAFTA negotiations came out, Canada and Mexico would temporarily obtain tariff immunity. Other countries can apply for immunity from the United States based on their contributions to the national security of the United States and alliances such as NATO.

Although JAMA expects the price of imported Japanese cars to increase, Nishikawa still refuses to disclose the impact of price increases. This will depend on the possible exemptions and differences between parts and manufacturers.

For example, Japanese automakers have begun to purchase commodity steel locally in the United States. Therefore, compared with aluminum products(Aluminum coil for car parts 3004), their steel components are relatively less affected by tariffs. Xichuan Guangren said: "We don't know what the future will be. We can only wait and see."
