"Mary, I can remember talking to you way back in January about the need for America to lead in electric vehicles. And I can remember your dramatic announcement that by 2035, GM would be 100% electric," said POTUS via Electrek's latest report.

They added that Biden also did the same thing with Ford's CEO Jim Carley, saying that the guy, the automaker's head for around a year, also massively changed the electric vehicle industry.

Meanwhile, experts said that GM is still having a hard time enhancing its own all-electric vehicle models. They added that the only EV released was the Chevy Bolt during Barra's term, which was launched back in 2012. 

However, the giant carmaker seems to have insufficient units of Chevy Bolt EVs, which was revealed in a Twitter post of Seth Weintraub, a reliable tech journalist from 9To5Google, 9To5Mac, Electrek, and other giant news sources.

"I don't even think there is a hybrid here. No Silverado, no Bolt/EUV, nothing. Only chargers are iPhone chargers," said the report via his latest tweet.
