Commerce secretary: 'too early' to say if U.S. will impose auto tariffs

WASHINGTON, July 19 (Reuters) - Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said Thursday it is "too early" to say if the United States will impose import tariffs of up to 25 percent on imported cars and parts -- a suggestion that has been met with harsh criticism from the industry.

The department opened a probe in May into whether imported autos and parts pose a national security risk and is holding a hearing on the investigation on Thursday, taking testimony from auto trade groups, many foreign governments and others.
