Tesla market value at this moment is about $104.768B, beating market value of German car manufacture Volkswagen AG ($89.535B atm) for the first time. If Tesla market value stays above $100B for some months, Tesla CEO Elon Musk will be smiling big to the bank for a huge payday.
While Musk’s skeptics are dubious that Tesla should be worth more than a carmaker that sold almost 30 times as many vehicles last year, Volkswagen’s own Herbert Diess isn’t so dismissive. He’s been arguably the most vocal CEO among traditional car makers to praise Tesla and point to its role in a radical shakeup of the more than century-old auto industry.
