The meeting came following a recent report from The Wall Street Journal which claimed that Tesla was considering dropping plans to produce a $35,000 Model 3 sedan. During the meeting, Musk and Biden discussed ways in which electric vehicles could help reduce emissions and improve air quality, as well as their potential to create new jobs in the U.S. automotive industry. Following the meeting, Tesla released a statement saying that it remains committed to producing a Model 3 at a pricepoint that is accessible to everyone, and that it has never given up on its plans to produce an affordable mass-market Tesla car.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk met with John Podesta and Mitch Landrieu to talk about our shared goals for electrification and how the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law can help accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles. The bipartisan legislation, championed by Vice President Biden and Senator McConnell, would provide funding for infrastructure improvements that support the nationwide deployment of advanced vehicles.
“We are excited to work with Senator McConnell and Vice President Biden on this important legislation,” said Elon Musk. “Electric vehicles have the potential to transform transportation, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, create jobs, and improve air quality – all while reducing our dependence on oil. We look forward to working with Congress to make this a reality.”
