Nice article, Christian ! When I recently read Elon Musk’s biography, I realized he is not here to mass produce electric vehicles, or SpaceX rockets, or batteries, or hyperloop etc. He is here to dream big, disrupt, and show us the way. I think, he is that “one in a billion” type person who shows things are possible and get out of the way for others to do so as well (hence the emphasis on Open Source AI).
For emerging markets like India (from where I come), he has made our government to try an audacious attempt to go ALL-ELECTRIC by 2030. It has partly to do with the Paris Climate agreement and the commitment to bring down emissions . However, the bigger reason is that Tesla has shown that electric can be mass produced and is well accepted.
