This is perhaps, a little verbal quarrel between the two world’s richest people. One would have felt that, as the fourth richest person on the planet, Elon Musk would equally impart thoughts to the world’s second richest person, Bill Gates with respect to other issues, but shockingly, Elon Musk is disparaging Bill Gates.
After Microsoft (MSFT) co-founder Bill Gates cast question on the feasibility of electric trucks, Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk said that, he thinks Gates does not understand what he is saying. Musk reacted to a tweet Saturday on how he felt about Gates’ revelation on electric vehicles.
The Microsoft manager gave a nitty gritty records of how he feels about the electric vehicles in a blog entry in August, clarifying why he was questionable about the potential for EVs as long stretch vehicles. As indicated by Gates, the batteries are large and substantial.
He thinks even with enormous forward leaps in battery technology, electric vehicles will presumably never be a viable answer for things like 18-wheelers, load boats, and traveler planes.
He is of the view that, power works when you have to cover short distances, yet the world need an alternate answer for hefty, long stretch vehicles.
In the interim, Gates offered credit to inheritance automakers GM and Ford and new carmarkers Rivian and Bollinger for their progressions in delivering all-electric get trucks. Telsa was not referenced on the list by Bill Gates.
In 2019, Tesla uncovered its new electric pickup, the Cybertruck and a more costly form of the truck, the Tri Motor All-Wheel-Drive. Tesla says production for the Cybertruck will start in late 2021, with production for the Tri Motor AWD variant in 2022.
Incredibly, Musk’s recent negative comments about Gates aren’t the first time both billionaires are having such little ‘hit’ against one another.
Early this year, the electric vehicle organization CEO said in a tweet he discovered conversations with him “disappointing.” The diss came after Gates referenced in a meeting that he bought an electric Porsche Taycan and not a Tesla.
