Elon Musk naturally took to Twitter to share the news, which was fine until the Chairman & CEO of Ford of Europe partook in some extremely cheeky subtweeting action.

Plenty of people came to Tesla's defense, some of whom suggested that Ford has been at this for decades longer, which is a fair argument.
