The White Home is asking Tesla CEO Elon Musk to assist them achieve their goals. It turned out that the US government wouldn’t give you the chance to quickly achieve its goals if it didn’t get help from an organization with the widest charging network in North America and all over the world.
Senior White House officials asked Elon Musk during a non-public meeting last month that Tesla make its wide charging network available to be used by non-Tesla electric vehicles, The Washington Post reports, citing two inside sources. The White Home is looking for to enlist the support of the top of the corporate in its efforts to realize its climate goals.
“John Podesta and Mitch Landrieu met with Elon Musk to debate shared goals around electrification and the way the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act can advance electric vehicle production and charging in addition to the broader reason behind electrification,” the White House spokesperson said Jan. 27, after the meeting.
Tesla has reportedly expressed willingness to work with the federal government towards opening its widest network of charging stations in North America for non-Tesla vehicles. Nevertheless, the corporate has not made any clear commitments.
Previously, President Joe Biden and his administration have been disrespectful to Musk and Tesla by not inviting them to government events related to EVs, and in addition by refusing to provide credit for the corporate’s merits within the wide distribution of EVs in the US. The White House showed itself to be biased by giving all of the credit for the expansion of the EV market within the US to General Motors and its CEO Mary Barra, without even mentioning the credits of Tesla and Musk, which also emphasized its short-sightedness. Meanwhile, the proven fact that the efforts of General Motors were completely insignificant in comparison with the enormous Tesla is value special attention.
The Biden administration has set a goal of constructing a national network of 500,000 electric vehicle chargers. Nevertheless, it turned out that its rapid implementation is unattainable without the assistance of the corporate, which actually created the electrical vehicle market and charging infrastructure for it within the US and all over the world. Musk and Tesla, for his or her part, were all the time able to help the federal government, and never provoked such an unfair attitude towards them.
