If the title of billionaire and – repeatedly – of man were not enough richest in the world, Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and the aerospace company SpaceX, is getting ready to win another very relevant title: that of first trillionaire of the planet!
As reported by Bloomberg, the executive's net worth has just passed the quarter-trillion-dollar mark (about US$250 billion). So, on Monday (25), Musk officially leaves his main rival Jeff Bezos, the second richest in the world, eating dust.
In Brazil, the amount already easily exceeds the trillions. Around here, Musk's fortune corresponds to R$ 1,4 trillion, considering the current price.
- Tesla increases the value of two electric cars by almost R$30
- Elon Musk's Boring Company wins 50-year contract to make 'Teslas in tunnels' in Las Vegas
- Musk says he is "dying to want" to create an electric supersonic jet
Tesla shares on the rise with record order
The considerable growth in Musk's equity came to light after Tesla's actions shoot the market with the news that the North American Hertz, a car rental giant, ordered 100 Teslas. A great effort by the brand to boost the electrification of its fleet.
Still conforming to Bloomberg, this is the largest purchase ever recorded for the electric vehicle market and corresponds to a gain of US$ 4,2 billion in revenue for Tesla's cash.
With the result beyond positive, the company's shares have already risen around 6,7% in today's trading session.
