Joe Biden plans to fully electrify entire U.S. Government fleet
The US Gov't will be more environmentally friendly than ever before!
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.
