The EPA and President Trump praised Ford for the design of the new Ford F-150 hybrid pickup truck. A joint statement released today claimed:
This is a truly American hybrid; built in America by American workers, running on American fuel to be driven in America, the USA again will once again lead the world in automobile technology!
The new vehicle is set for launch in 2017 and is the first hybrid to use “completely natural energy sources endorsed by the EPA”. President Trump is touting the technology as a victory for his campaign to bring jobs back to Pennsylvania; the state will supply the coal used for the coal/gasoline “eco-burner” hybrid power source at the new model’s core.
