Originally published on EV Annex.
By Matt Pressman

Although Tesla Motors [NASDAQ: TSLA] is covered heavily in the press every day, there are many surprising facts about the company and its visionary leader, Elon Musk, that still aren’t widely publicized. To that end, Valuewalk* published an infographic in order to showcase 41 fascinating (sometimes insane) facts about Tesla and Elon Musk. They note that Elon Musk’s, “dual background in economics and physics, combined with a canny eye for the zeitgeist, has provided the right chemistry to cook up his $12.1 billion fortune… [and] Musk and his organization have never lost faith in the inevitability of the dominance of electric cars.”

Without a doubt, Tesla continues to dominate electric vehicle movement. And, “with a staff of 14,000 and a market value of $33.5 billion – from which Musk draws a salary of just a dollar a year – Tesla Motors’ wedge of the industry has grown to reflect the vision of its iconic boss… Musk’s success – and his potential – rests on his informed vision of not just how the world will look tomorrow or next year, but in ten, twenty, fifty years time.”

So how is Elon Musk playing the “long game” for the future of the sustainable transport? “Tesla Motors’ lithium-ion battery ‘Gigafactory’, for example, will be powered by 100% renewable energy – remarkable, considering it will be the second largest building in the world. Such scale, vision and conscientiousness is why Tesla Motors is a major, major company to keep an eye on – and you can begin by checking out some of the startling facts and figures in this smart new infographic.”
