Gov. Phil Scott took a joy ride around St. Johnsbury Wednesday morning. Scott was in town to highlight Vermont’s efforts to promote the transition to electric vehicles and to pick up the latest addition to the state government’s fleet of EVs, an all-electric Ford F-150 Lightning, which will be available as one of the governor’s security detail vehicles. Scott and Vt. Agency of Transportation Secretary Joe Flynn spoke about Vermont’s various incentives to make electric vehicles more affordable, investments in charging infrastructure across the state, and the enthusiastic adoption of EVs within state government. The transportation sector is Vermont’s largest contributor to greenhouse gases, noted Scott, adding the transition to electric vehicles is essential to combating climate change.
