Tesla stopped receiving subsidies from the US authorities

The American manufacturer of electric cars Tesla stopped receiving tax subsidies from the US authorities, said the head of the company Elon Musk.

“By the way, Tesla receives the “smallest” subsidies compared to any other automakers in the United States. Federal tax subsidies apply to electric cars of other automakers, but no longer to Tesla,” Musk wrote on Twitter.

The American company Tesla Motors was founded in 2003 as a developer and manufacturer of electric vehicles and technologies related to them. The company is headquartered in Palo Alto, California, USA. In addition to electric cars, the company uses its technology to produce batteries and electric motors and sells them to other car companies, such as Toyota and Daimler.
