It’s really cool that the US has a ‘car guy’ as president.
President Biden visited Ford’s Electric Vehicle Center in Michigan this week to promote his plan to help the U.S. auto industry, and their transition to electric vehicles. Biden shared the stage with significant Ford pickup trucks of the past, including a fat-fender F-100, a Raptor and the new F-150 Lightning EV pickup, making its first public appearance.
It’s common knowledge that US Presidents must surrender their driver’s licenses, and cannot drive while in office. But after his speech, Biden took a pre-production electric Ford pickup out on the private test track and kicked the crap out of it. No matter what you think of his politics, you have to hand it to the man. He used a PR event as an excuse to get back behind the wheel of a 563 HP monster of a truck.
