The beef between Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Lucid Motors CEO / CTO Peter Rawlinson appears to be intensifying. Musk has thrown shade at Rawlinson multiple times in the past, often claiming that his role at Tesla was minimal and that he departed “before things got tough”.

But now matters appear to be getting even more bitter, with Musk stating on Twitter that Rawlinson was never even Tesla’s Chief Engineer. That’s despite multiple sources claiming otherwise, including archived content on Tesla’s own website

Why would Elon Musk make such an outlandish statement? Who knows, but altering facts certainly isn’t a good look for either him or Tesla. Musk has spoken about the need for electrification across the car industry as a whole, so why he is being so hostile to a former colleague and fellow CEO in the area is beyond me.
