Why is the Biden Administration So Afraid of Tesla?

Why is the Biden Administration So Afraid of Tesla?

The largest EV producer and an American country was given the cold shoulder by the Biden Administration

The Biden administration is so enthusiastic about transitioning to green vehicles that it hosed an EV-themed event to announce that it want’s 50-percent of new vehicle sales by 2030 to be battery-electric, PHEV, or hydrogen-powered vehicles. General Motors was there, Ford was there, and even Stellantis had a representative at the party. Who wasn’t there? Elon Musk or a single person related to Tesla. But why would the Biden administration snub the only American automaker who’s lineup is 100-percent electric?

Elon Musk Is Promising a $25,000 Tesla in Three Years

Here's What Your Favorite Car Would Look Like If Elon Musk Designed It

Here’s What Your Favorite Car Would Look Like If Elon Musk Designed It

Someone cybetrucked five iconic cars

When Tesla debuted the Roadster back in 2008, the electric drop-topped didn’t look radically different than the Lotus it was based on. However, the Model S came later with a unique design that set it apart from the competition. The Model X added a bit more uniqueness through the "falcon" doors, but things became really wild when Tesla unveiled the Cybertruck. An unconventional polygonal design that seems to defy modern aerodynamics and automotive styling cues, the Cybertrack is a perfect example of form follows function. If you’re wondering how some of the world’s most iconic cars would look like if Elon Musk designed them, the folks over at Leasing Options virtually "cybertrucked" five of them.

Musk knowing how to fix glasses is reassuring. So, where can I lay my $100 for the Cybertruck?

Are Electric Cars a Hoax?

Are Electric Cars a Hoax?

A slightly different look at the realm of electric cars

Electric cars seem to be our only way to the future. They will save the planet and give us more comfort. They are quicker, faster, and more fun. Heck, EVs also have the potential to be cheaper and more accessible alternatives to any ICE-powered vehicle. In this article, I will try to explore the broader ramifications of electric car mass production. I will show you why electric cars could give governments more control over your life and give car companies more money out of your pockets. Electric cars will do all that while taking away from you the one thing that gasoline and diesel-powered cars selflessly provided - freedom. I have a question that is almost in the realm of conspiracy - are electric cars a hoax?
