This is the first time President Joe Biden has lauded electric vehicles since he took oath as the president last year.
CEO of Tesla and SpaceX Elon Musk has not been quiet over this burning issue of President Biden ignoring the growth of electric vehicles across the country.
According to the White House, Biden had an antipathy towards Tesla because his belief for the company was anti-union.
Biden lauded Tesla on Tuesday for the first time during his presidency while openly acknowledging that the company is indeed the “largest producer of electric vehicles.”
President Biden also gave a shout-out to other electric vehicles manufacturers such as Ford Motor, General Motors, and even newer and smaller automaker companies such as Proterra and Rivian automotive.
“Since 2021, companies have announced investments totaling more than $200 billion in domestic manufacturing here in America, from iconic companies like GM and Ford building out new electric-vehicle production to Tesla, our nation’s largest electric vehicle manufacturer, to innovative younger companies like Rivian, building electric trucks, or Proterra, building electric buses,” Biden said.
This acknowledgment of Tesla publicly comes after numerous verbal clashes between the electric vehicles company and the White House. Elon Musk has openly criticized president Biden and his policies on Twitter and other social platforms.
Elon Musk has called president Biden from “a damp sock puppet in human form” to accusing him of “being controlled by unions.”
President Joe Biden was all praises for Tritium – a fast charging equipment manufacturer which recently announced that it is planning to establish a new manufacturing unit in Tennessee. Biden also acknowledged the efforts of Intel who has announced a huge semiconductor chip factory in the outskirts of Ohio.
“Those semiconductors, microchips power virtually everything in our everyday lives. Cellphones, automobiles, refrigerators, the internet, the electric grid. Without semiconductors those things cannot fully function,” said Biden.
President Joe Biden gave the example of Tesla as a company that has profusely invested in American manufacturing, supporting the economic condition of the country.
