President Joe Biden delivers remarks at the Ford Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Michigan
President Biden is heading to a Ford Motor plant in Michigan on Tuesday to highlight the need to invest in electric vehicles as the White House looks to drum up support for his $2.3 trillion tax and spending plan, which includes billions to transform the auto industry.
Biden will tour Ford’s new Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, Michigan, where the company is producing its new electric F-150 lightning pickup, ahead of the truck’s official launch on Wednesday. The F-150 Lightning, which Ford is heralding as a turning point for electric vehicles, is expected to go on sale by mid-2022.
Ford’s new truck will be built by union laborers. The company said it expects to spend about $700 million and create 300 new jobs.
