The President of the United States of America, Joe Biden signed an executive order to replace entire government fleet with Electric Vehicles (EVs).
The electrification plan associated with the new order entitled ‘Buy American’, could affect over 645,000 vehicles.
The ‘Buy American’ order was made in a bid to strengthen local productions in the USA through consistent patronage.
As suggested by tweet below, the ‘Buy American’ order will invest in the future of the American industry and ensure workers are treated with dignity and respect they deserve.
“The federal government owns an enormous fleet of vehicles, which we’re going to replace with clean, EVs made right here in America by American workers, creating millions of jobs, a million autoworker jobs in clean energy and vehicles that are net-zero emissions,” says President Biden
“And together, this will be the largest mobilization of public investment in procurement, infrastructure, and R&D since World War II” He added.
It should be noted that the Biden Led administration promised to make resounding history in Research and development, especially in battery technology and EVs.
