Bill Gates has no clue about electric trucks: Elon Musk
Washington : Tesla founder and CEO, Elon Musk, believes that Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates must not be having any knowledge about electric trucks.
Responding to a follower on a tweet about Tesla's incoming Battery Day event, Elon Musk responded to a question about Gates' blog on electric trucks in which the world's second-richest man stated, "will probably never be a practical solution" for heavy, long-haul vehicles, cargo ships and passenger jets."
Elon Musk said that Bill Gates "has no clue" about electric trucks. Tesla is all set to enter the electric truck segment where they have already announced the semi-truck.
It is likely that Tesla will release its semi-truck by 2021; it has also been learned that the truck will have a running mileage of 500 miles.
Gates and Musk have been having a digital 'Cold War' of sorts where both the billionaires have been going at each other in one way or the other. Even Gates' blog was conspicuous for not mentioning Tesla even once even though the electric car company has transformed the automotive industry and now is the most valued automotive company on the planet.
