BYD Now More Influential Than Tesla

TIME has revealed its second annual TIME100 Most Influential Companies list, highlighting businesses making an extraordinary impact around the world. A few automotive companies have also made it to the lists, nominated in different categories such as Pioneers, Titans, Leaders, Innovators, and Disruptors.

A total of 6 brands, with work encompassing different sectors of the automotive industry, are listed here. These include Ford Motor Company, BYD, EV Connect, Rivian, No Traffic, and Opibus. TIME editors evaluated each on key factors, including relevance, impact, innovation, leadership, ambition, and success. Interestingly America’s own Tesla, which is considered as the largest EV manufacturer of the world is not included in the list.

Listed in TIME’S 100 Most Influential Companies of 2022 in the Titans category, Ford managed to push its market value over $100 billion for the first time in January, as it electrified some of its most popular models such as the F-Series, America’s best-selling pickup. TIME writes that it is not enough to just offer EVs, but people must want them, and offering an EV alternative for its best-seller managed to convert people towards EVs.
