WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Major automakers including General Motors Co (N:), Toyota Motor Corp (T:), Hyundai Motor Co (KS:) and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV (MI:) are asking to intervene in a lawsuit filed by 23 U.S. states last month, the companies said on Monday.

The automakers are seeking to intervene on behalf of the Trump administration after California and 22 other states sued in September to undo the Trump administration’s determination that federal law bars California from setting stiff tailpipe emission standards and zero-emission vehicle mandates.

Other automakers including Ford Motor Co (N:), Honda Motor Co (T:) and Volkswagen AG (DE:), which announced a voluntary deal with California in July on emissions rules, are not joining the effort to intervene.
