Biden says the U.S government's cars are going electric

President Biden announced Monday that his administration plans to replace all of the vehicles owned by the U.S. government with "net-zero emission" electric vehicles in the future.

Biden made the announcement as part of a new executive order aimed at spurring U.S. manufacturing jobs and investing in the country's infrastructure. It wasn't clear whether he meant any low-emission vehicles, like hybrids, or solely electric vehicles, nor did he give a timeframe for when all the vehicles would be replaced. The government owns some 645,047 vehicles, according to a 2019 report.
