As the world's top electric car manufacturer, Tesla proves its stature not only through production but also in terms of its workforce and job creation.

Though Silicon Valley frequently dominates discussions around America's technological advancements, recent findings spotlight the Mid-West and the South as pivotal regions in the Electric Vehicle (EV) industry. The Blue Green Alliance Foundation and Atlas Public Policy's report illuminates that these zones have become epicenters for job creation and financial infusion, driven by the escalating demand in the EV sector.

Recent data indicates that of the $154 billion invested in the EV industry over the past few years, a significant portion has flowed into these traditionally underemphasized regions. Nationally, about 188,000 jobs have emerged from the EV surge, with the bulk of this economic acceleration concentrated in the Mid-West and the South.

In a striking detail, 32% of the 319 EV facilities are situated within underserved communities. This positioning has been instrumental in creating job avenues in rural areas, adding a deeper socio-economic layer to the EV growth narrative. Demonstrating a commitment to workers' rights, a quarter of these facilities operate under union representation, which is considerably higher than the 10% national average reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Although Tesla remains at the forefront with its contribution of 28,524 job opportunities, competitors like Ford, Rivian, and LG are not far behind, each contributing to under 15,000 EV-related positions. Investment in the sector peaked in 2022, reaching a staggering $70 billion, with significant contributions from industry stalwarts like LG, Tesla, General Motors, and Ford.

The positive trajectory can also be credited to policies like President Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Beyond offering tax incentives for EV purchasers, these policies bolster domestic manufacturing efforts.
