Biden fulfills Elon Musk’s wish

The US president acknowledged Tesla’s leadership in the US electric vehicle market

President Joe Biden referred to Tesla as the largest electric car manufacturer in the United States after CEO Elon Musk launched a scathing tirade at the US president for seemingly ignoring the company while praising its competitors.

“Since 2021, companies have announced investments totalling more than $200 billion in domestic manufacturing here in America,” said Biden during a speech on US manufacturing, Tuesday, citing “iconic companies like GM and Ford building out new electric vehicle production, to Tesla, our nation’s largest electric vehicle manufacturer.”

Biden praised the companies for helping to bring “microchip manufacturing back to America after decades of decay.”
