US President Joe Biden recently posted on his personal Twitter an advertisement for an electric car, but used a picture of sitting on a petrol car to illustrate, confusing viewers.
Self-proclaimed “car enthusiast”, not long ago US President Joe Biden had a Detroit auto show on September 14. After the exhibition, he published an advertisement about electric cars and urged people to give up petrol cars and encourage the use of electric cars. According to the New York Post, at the Detroit show, Biden tried both high-value gasoline and electric cars such as Chevrolet Corvette Z06, Chevrolet Silverado EV electric car, Cadillac Lyric …
When he took a test drive of the electric Cadillac Lyric, he joked to reporters: “Get in the car and I’ll take you to Washington.” However, after trying this car, he shared that it is a beautiful car but he appreciates the gasoline-powered Chevrolet more while he is calling on people to give up petrol cars for electric cars.
It is noteworthy that after the exhibition, the “car-loving” President posted a post on Twitter praising electric cars with the content: “Everyone knows I am a car lover. I visited the Detroit Auto Show today and saw with my own eyes the range of electric vehicles, which provide plenty of reason to be optimistic about our future.” however, the attached photo is of him with the gasoline-powered Chevrolet he once praised at the show. This President’s tweet made many people feel confused and attracted the attention of the online community.
Many people left comments under Mr. Biden’s post that a car enthusiast like him also confuses gas cars with electric cars. The American magazine “Road and Track” suggested that perhaps the person in charge of the President’s Twitter page had mistaken the car in the post for a new electric vehicle because in April, Chevrolet said it would build a new electric car. electric Corvette Z06.
Mr. Joe Biden is strongly encouraging Americans to use electric cars and also has many supportive policies if people want to buy. In the inflation reduction law signed last month, there is a content that the US government will support a tax credit of 7500 US dollars if people want to buy new electric cars. The Building Act that Biden signed last year also promotes the electric vehicle industry by allocating $5 billion over five years for states to build networks of electric vehicle charging stations. In particular, during the last Detroit auto show, the president also announced his approval of $900 million in funding to build electric vehicle charging stations on national highways up to 53,000 miles long in 34 states and Puerto Rico.
