Elon Musk, who famously open-sourced all of Tesla's patents, praised his competitors for their progress on electric vehicles.




At Tesla's Model Y unveiling on Thursday, Musk shared examples of how skeptical some media outlets were years ago.




Ford, Volkswagen, Porsche and more traditional automakers have all announced electric models in the years since and Elon Musk isn't scared of the competition.



Elon Musk has long been outspoken in his mission to advance electric transportation, regardless of who wins the race.
On Thursday, Musk even went so far as to praise many of his competitors that are finally embracing electric vehicles, starting with a look back at how Tesla was originally covered by some news outlets.
"These are some of the comments from back then," Musk told a packed house of Wall Street analysts, investors, journalists, and other Tesla fans. "The internet is forever," he joked, adding that "people said 'you're a fraud.' Okay, well you can drive that fraud."
