Biden met with Elon Musk and Peter Rawlinson to discuss EVs and EV charging infrastructure.
"Among the topics reportedly discussed in the meeting was funding on how to “create a national network of 500,000 chargers.” This is something that Musk would likely be able to help with, seeing as Tesla has been able to effectively cover the United States with its Supercharger and Destination Charger Network on its own dime.

Interestingly enough, Musk was not the only CEO in the meeting who was leading a pure electric vehicle company. As per a Reuters report, Lucid Motors CEO Peter Rawlinson was also in attendance. This bodes well for the Biden administration’s overall electric vehicle goals, as it shows that it is now recognizing the work of up-and-coming EV companies that are still finding their footing.

On the veteran auto side, the administration’s recent meeting was attended by Ford Motor CEO Jim Farley, Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares, Nissan Americas chair Jeremie Papin, and General Motors CEO Mary Barra. Executives from Toyota Motor North America, Mazda North America, Mercedes-Benz USA, Hyundai Motor America, and Kia Motors America were also in attendance.

On the administration’s side, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Infrastructure Coordinator Mitch Landrieu, National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy, and Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, were present in the meeting as well."
