ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (WCAX) - Vermont Gov. Phil Scott is now the first governor in the country whose official vehicle fleet is all electric.

On Wednesday in St. Johnsbury, the governor and his security team received a brand new Ford F-150 Lightning, an all-electric pickup truck. The ride replaces a gas-powered SUV.

Scott reminds residents transportation is Vermont’s greatest contributor to pollution. The state’s climate report requires Vermont to cut greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030.
