President Barack Obama said the U.S. government will buy 17,600 new, fuel-efficient vehicles from ailing American automakers by June 1.

Obama made the announcement Thursday in a statement issued by the White House, saying the General Services Administration will spend $285 million of Recovery Act Funds to purchase the vehicles for the government fleet.

All purchases will be made from manufacturers with an existing contract with the GSA, which are General Motors Corp. (NYSE:GM), Chrysler LLC and Ford Motor Co. (NYSE:F). This includes the purchase of 2,500 hybrid sedans that will be ordered by April 15.
