Billionaire Elon Musk’s Q&A sessions are traditionally the most entertaining part of Tesla’s annual shareholders meeting, and this year’s appearance did not disappoint.
During today’s hourlong meeting at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif., Musk fielded questions about what he does during his off time, and whether a nuclear fusion reactor would fit in the front trunk of Tesla’s Model S electric car.
But there was also serious substance to Musk’s talk. One of the biggest applause lines came when he discussed preparations for the unveiling of Tesla’s Semi electric-powered truck in September. He said a prototype of the truck already has been shown to organizations that buy heavy-duty trucks.
“They all love it,” he said. “They just want to know how many can they buy, and how soon. … We’re getting them closely involved in the design process.”
