Because Bill Gates New Car Was Not A Tesla!
It seems that Elon Musk, CEO of the American car company Tesla, is unable to hide his concerns about a new German car that might be a strong competitor for Tesla cars. This led Elon to lose control and insult Bill Gates new car publicly on Twitter.
Many of you might have guessed that the German car we’re talking about is the all-electric 2020 Porsche Taycan, which is the first production electric vehicle produced by Porsche. We had previously test-driven Porsches electric car in one episode of Special Coverage program, which was presented by our website founder Mousub Shashaa.
According to official information, Porsche Taycan is indeed Bill Gates’s newest personal car. As the founder of Microsoft, who is considered the second richest man in the world, said in an interview with (Marques Brownlee) on his YouTube channel that he had purchased the 2020 Porsche Taycan.
This announcement made Elon Musk angry and he tweeted. “My conversations with Gates have been underwhelming to be honest,”
He also added: I am disappointed because a lot of people are going to watch the interview and they are going to trust Bill’s word for it and not even consider EVs. Why? Because Bill Gates is a really smart guy!
I was disappointed when Bill mentioned range anxiety. 99% of the days when you do a commute that is less than 200+ miles you don’t have to spend time charging.
If takes 5 min to put gas and you do it once a week you now have 260 min (or ~1,500 miles) for Supercharging @elonmusk

This came after Bill Gates said in the interview that electric vehicles would still fall behind gasoline cars when it comes to range, but added passenger cars are “one of the most hopeful” factors in bringing down the cost of environmentally friendly alternatives.
“And certainly Tesla, if you had to name one company that’s helped drive that, it’s them,” Gates said. But he’s not buying one of the company’s cars just yet: “I just got a Porsche Taycan.”
“I have to say, it’s a premium-price car but it is very, very cool,” Gates added. “That’s my first electric car and I’m enjoying it a lot.”
