Elon Musk believes that Bill Gates bet against Tesla and lost a lot of money from it

Elon Musk in an interview with Joe Rogan who said he wants the Tesla Roadster to be able to hover 1 meter off the ground, also spoke about Bill Gates saying that he has been told that Gates is among the shorts sellers who bet against the share price of Tesla and the fall in its value. Tesla’s share in 2020 increased by 740%, while already in 2021 it has increased by 23%.

As the richest man in the world said:

I also heard that [ο Gates] has invested against Tesla and lost a lot of money. I do not know if this is true or not, but it seems strange. People I know who know the situation quite well, I asked them “are you sure” and they said “yes, he has invested a lot against the Tesla stock”. This did not work very well.

Last year, Gates expressed doubts about whether Tesla’s electric pickup and Semi truck would be viable, with Musk tweeting at the time that Gates “has no idea.” In an interview with Rogan, he added:

He did not know what he was talking about. Probably someone told him that he is not so close to what he knows. I just don’t think he knows what he’s talking about.

Musk pointed out that Tesla already has functional prototypes of its truck that carry out tests while transporting loads, while he pointed out that Tesla is not the only car manufacturer that prepares electric trucks.

In related news, Tesla plans to build a manufacturing plant in India. This was specifically announced by the state government of the state of Karnataka. Tesla will start sales in India in the first half of the year.
