Here’s why Elon Musk advised Joe Biden to buy a Tesla


Washington: Tesla chief Elon Musk on Sunday advised US President Joe Biden to buy a Tesla after the latter announced plans to build charging stations across the country.

Biden recently announced the first round of funding for a nationwide electric car charging network that will fund the construction of stations in 35 states.

“We are building 500,000 electric vehicle charging stations across the country. The great American road trip is completely electrified,” Biden said on Twitter.

In response, Musk suggested, “Or just buy a Tesla.”

Biden wrote from his @POTUS account: “You hired me to get things done – I hope to make you proud.”

Again, Musk replied, “I kind of like this post, tbh (to be honest)”.

In early 2022, Biden mentioned Ford and GM’s combined $18 billion investment in electric vehicles, while Tesla was not mentioned in Biden’s address to the nation. Musk responded by saying, “No one is watching the State of the Union.”
