Billionaire Elon Musk, on July 26, criticized technology giant Apple in remarks made during a conference call about Tesla’s second-quarter results.
Musk denied that Tesla uses a large amount of cobalt in the production of lithium-ion cells, which are used in electric vehicles.
Apple, Tesla, and major technology companies were in 2019 named as defendants in a human rights lawsuit linked to children who died while cobalt mining.
Musk also referred to the iPhone-maker when stating that Tesla does not intend to create a “walled garden” to quash competition.
“I think we do want to emphasize that our goal is to support the advent of sustainable energy,” Musk said in response to a question about letting competitors use its charger network.
