Many Twitter users supported Musk’s comments.
When Musk joined Tesla as its co-founder and pioneered the electric vehicle market, many did not trust him, saying electric vehicles were not a viable alternative to polluting petroleum vehicles.
In fact, Kasturi himself admitted during a discussion at the D11 conference in 2013 that entering the EV business was “one of the stupidest things you can do”. He said he still got into it because he “saw a huge market” and because it became clear that no major car manufacturer would make electric vehicles.
In a previous tweet, Musk explained a little more about why the journey from prototype to construction was tough. He tweeted, “Tesla and Ford are the only American carmakers who won’t go bankrupt out of 1000 car startups”.
Tesla and Ford are the only American carmakers that have not filed for bankruptcy out of 1000 car startups. The prototypes are simple, the product is tough and the cash flow is positive it is exciting.

To which, Ford CEO Jim Farrell replied: “Respect.”
Tesla is known as a pioneer in the field of electric vehicles. Its popular electric passenger cars include the Model 3, Model S and Model Y. The company is said to be entering the Indian market soon.
