Higher tariffs would deliver a major blow to all global automakers as most, including U.S. ones, rely on imports to source the vehicles and parts contained in them which are sold in the United States. Earlier this week, Denso Corp (6902.T), one of the world’s biggest components suppliers, said U.S. auto tariffs, if implemented, could wipe up to $720 million off annual profit. Ford Motor Co (F.N) last week said tariffs in general could cost it up to $1.6 billion in 2018 in North America.

Cars which are registered for sale ahead of this deadline can still be passed on to dealerships after September.
