After being accused of ignoring Tesla for months in his speeches about electric vehicles, while praising General Motors and Ford, US President Joe Biden has now mentioned the Californian EV manufacturer by name for the first time in a public speech as “the largest electric car manufacturer in our country”.
Elon Musk and Tesla fans are finally appeased. US President Biden’s full quote was as follows: “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 [facilities], to Tesla, our nation’s largest electric vehicle manufacturer, to innovative, younger companies like Rivian, building electric trucks, or ProTerra, building electric buses.”
