“Tesla has to be hardcore and demanding, not for the hell of it, but because we are fighting for a good cause against giant, entrenched competitors who just want the status quo to continue.”
This is from an email Elon Musk sent to his now more than 33,000 employees to stir a “hardcore mentality” in them and as a reminder of a shared mission, despite Tesla’s growth from a start-up into a more corporate entity. Excellence is to prevail.
“Mr. Trump is not only up against California, he’s up against the rest of the world, not to mention science itself. And it’s very obvious who’s going to win.”
California governor Jerry Brown definitely seems to have his own hardcore mentality and resorts to a similar call for climate action as Musk albeit his competitors are in another league – strictly speaking.
