Joe Biden plans to fully electrify entire U.S. Government fleet

The US Gov't will be more environmentally friendly than ever before!

16w ago

Joe Biden has only been the President of the United States for a number of days and has already made some vast changes. One of the main goals in his plan is to fully electrify the entire US Government fleet.

Doing this will make Government travel more sustainable and efficient while reducing emissions that accelerate climate change.

Biden said: “The Federal Government also owns an enormous fleet of vehicles. We are going to replace [them] with clean electric vehicles made right here in America, by American workers, creating 1 million autoworker jobs in clean energy…and vehicles that are net-zero emissions.”

This remark appears to mean that the US Gov't will now use the likes of Teslas to get around which will be great news for Elon Musk. It is also beneficial to them as Tesla produces a majority of its electric vehicles in the United States in Fremont, California.

Aside from Tesla, General Motors, Ford, and Volkswagen are all also likely to receive benefits from this plan.

Biden is also interested in spending $300 billion into “electric vehicle technology to lightweight materials, to 5G and artificial intelligence – to unleash high-quality job creation in high-value manufacturing and technology,” according to the President’s website.

In order to follow through with this plan to create a low-emission future, the majority of the parts of a Government vehicle will be manufactured in the United States equalling at least 50% of a car is to be comprised of parts manufactured in the United States.

It looks to be an exciting time ahead for the likes of Tesla and the US in general. The entire world looks to be embracing an EV future and it's certainly an exciting one.

Do you think this is a smart move?

    • Net zero emissions? Are these cars built by magical plants that don’t pollute and powered by strictly by free electricity? This is beyond stupid. Wouldn’t it be “greener” to use the fleet you have already bought and not produce more cars?

  • We’re all screwed. How could anyone think that EVs are more economical? Probably the same people that voted for the fool.

  • Before the naysayers show up I want to note that:

    -70 to 80% of ICE cars’ fuel does not contribute to moving the vehicle

    -EVs can travel 3 to 4 times as far on the same unit of fossil fuel as ICE vehicles

    -EVs can also be charged by renewable means

    -EVs charged by fossil fuel burning power plants have an approximately equal environmental impact to ICE cars at about 20,000 miles of operation. After this time of making up for their initial larger impact, their impact is fractional to ICE for the remainder of their service life

    -people who ask about the impact of building and recycling batteries who don’t now and didn’t previously ask those questions about single-use gas and diesel in a refillable chemical potential “battery” are dishonest

    • But really car people like actual engines and i like that filling my truck up takes minutes not hours. Plus considering the process of digging up the minerals to building ev cells, i would say they aren't better than ICE

    • If I may respectfully suggest:

      car people are more than one thing; we’re not all the same. Interesting and successful people usually have more than one dimension.

      I admire car people who are able to enjoy one car for the sound it makes and...
