The US government says there is a consensus that charging stations should be reliable and provide a seamless user experience, no matter what the car or where it is located.
Ford Motor CEO Jim Farley, Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares, Lucid CEO Peter Rawlinson, and Nissan Americas Senior Vice President Jeremie Papin also attended the meeting which was held on Wednesday (6/4/2022).
The meeting also discussed US funding to create a nationwide network of 500,000 chargers.
On the other hand, Musk has frequently clashed with the White House and has frequently made abusive tweets directed at US President Joe Biden.
In February, Biden publicly acknowledged Tesla’s role in the development of electric vehicles in the US, after Musk repeatedly complained of being neglected.
Last year, the US Congress approved a $7.5 billion budget to fund electric vehicle charging stations.
However, discussions have stalled for new tax incentives to buy and build electric vehicles.
Also attending the latest meeting were Transport Minister Pete Buttigieg, Energy Minister Jennifer Granholm, National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy, and Infrastructure Coordinator Mitch Landrieu.
Executives from Hyundai Motor America, Subaru of America, Mazda North America, Toyota Motor North America, Mercedes-Benz USA, and Kia Motors America also took part.
Last week, automakers backed the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) new, tougher vehicle emission regulations.
The organization representing nearly all automakers, the Alliance for Automotive Innovation, said the new EPA rules would challenge the industry.
However, the organization wants to ensure important regulatory provisions that support electric vehicle technology are maintained.
