The World's Top Wealth Fund Voted Against Musk As Chair At Tesla

The updates provided by Elon Musk and the company's executives during the Annual Shareholder Meeting appear to have struck a note of confidence for the company's investors.

"Semi and Roadster are actually going to be better than what was unveiled", said Musk, confirming his previous announcement that the Roadster reveal model, with its 1.9sec 0-60mph time, was the entry-level variant. A damaging split at this stage between board and management would risk everything and it's clear that Tesla has a hit on its hands with the Model 3 (about half a million orders with effectively free loans amounting to nearly half a billion dollars from the deposits paid), but an engineering problem associated with building enough of them fast enough.

'As we expand our EV capabilities and commitment, we get even more excited about the role electric motorcycles will play in growing our business'.

The fund also voted against the re-election of board member Antonio Gracias, but backed the reappointment of James Murdoch as well as Elon Musk's brother Kimbal.

In April shareholder Jing Zhao tabled the suggestion to split the chairman and chief executive position, while also saying that Musk's involvement with SpaceX and the Boring Company could create possible sources of conflicts for Tesla down the road.

"I'd probably put some sandbag on future dates; that's probably wise", Musk said. "Next quarter, at the Gigafactory, we expect to make more battery capacity than all other EVs combined worldwide, including China". Musk said manufacturing will be Tesla's greatest strength long-term and predicted the company would be profitable in Q3 and Q4. That's something the Palo Alto, California, company has rarely pulled off in a 15-year history marked by steady losses while investing heavily in its technology and manufacturing plants. Still just one-third complete, it already takes two hours to walk the length of the factory floor, according to Musk.
