Seems a little hypocritical since Tesla was not invited to Biden’s EV summit

Electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming more popular as an alternative to traditional gas-powered cars. In an effort to speed up the transition to EVs, the US government has allocated billions of dollars to subsidize their purchase, build out charging infrastructure, and incentivize the development of new EV technologies.

Tesla Motors has positioned itself at the forefront of this shift to EVs, with their vehicles leading the charge in terms of range, acceleration, and design. With their growing presence in the EV market, Tesla is now facing pressure from the US government to unlock their network of Supercharger stations, allowing other automakers to access and use the network.

The proposal is part of the recently-passed $2.3 trillion spending package, and would require Tesla to open up access to their Supercharger network by 2023. This would enable other automakers to utilize Tesla’s existing infrastructure, instead of building new charging stations from scratch, potentially speeding up the transition to EVs and reducing the costs of launching electric vehicles.

Tesla has remained silent on the proposal so far, but the company is likely to push back against it. Opening up the Supercharger network to other automakers would mean Tesla would lose a unique competitive advantage and potentially become just another player in the EV market.

The 2023 deadline for Tesla to open up their Supercharger network is still a ways off, and the proposal is far from becoming a law. Still, it points to the growing push from the US government to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles, and the potential impact Tesla could have on the industry, for better or worse.
