President Biden has been busy during his first few weeks in office, with the 46th President of the United States significantly pledging to replace every single federally-owned vehicle with an electric or electrified vehicle.

Biden hasn’t clarified whether the plan includes military vehicles, but he has said that all of them will be made in America. If a report from the US Government’s General Services Administration in July 2020, the US federal government administration owns and runs around  382,901 non-military vehicles, with  most being used by the  US Postal Service.
