US President Joe Biden suddenly visited the Ford plant and personally tested the automaker's electric novelty
US President Joe Biden has tested a new electric car at a factory in Michigan. We are talking about the yet-to-be-released F-150 Lightning model from Ford, which has been producing cars since 2011. Biden visited the Ford assembly plant in Dearborn, and then made a surprise stop at the test facility.
The pickup truck can travel almost 500 kilometers on a single charge and accelerates to 97 km / h in 4.4 seconds. Biden said that the car was fast and that he would have bought one for himself. The American president also added that the United States is aimed at world leadership in the production of electric vehicles.
Sales of the Ford F-150 Lightning are expected to begin in the United States in the first half of 2022.
There were also political issues. But Biden joked when reporters asked if they could talk about the Middle East:
вЂ” Mr. President, can I ask you a quick question about Israel before you leave?
вЂ” No, you can't! Unless you stand in front of the car when I step on the gas. I'm kidding.
