“The company that has made great progress besides Tesla is actually Volkswagen. VW is doing its best on the electric vehicle front,” said Elon Musk.
Volkswagen is a long-standing player in the global automotive industry. Is one of the largest business groups in the world that has many brands under it. Musk said Volkswagen is an old car manufacturer that is growing rapidly in the electric vehicle industry. Musk is even reluctant to compare VW with other electric vehicle startups such as Rivian, Lucid, and Nio.
Elon Musk is friends with Volkswagen Group CEO Herbert Diess. They even exchanged test drives for Tesla and VW electric cars.
Tesla sees strong competition from Chinese electric car manufacturers. According to Elon Musk, there will be a lot of EV manufacturers emerging from China because of the many talented hard workers in China.
