Elon Musk: Person of the Year According to TIME

Elon Musk was named person of the year in 2021 by TIME magasine

There is no longer any doubt about Elon Musk’s contribution to the automotive industry. His electric offensive with Tesla has literally forced older manufacturers to rethink their future electrification policies. In a few years, we’ll be able to talk about the pre-Tesla and post-Tesla periods in modern automotive history.

Well, Elon Musk has just been named TIME’s Person of the Year, an honor reserved for larger-than-life beings. In the automotive world, very few personalities have managed to make the cover of the publication, let alone be named “Person of the Year”. Among them is Walter P. Chrysler, who was named Person of the Year in 1928, the head honcho who had founded his company three years earlier at the time.

The article published by TIME is very extensive and covers many facets of the life of the richest man on Earth, including his adventure with Tesla, but also his involvement in space exploration and even his plans to build high-speed tunnels for transportation between two distant cities for example.

The founder of Tesla is also a man of influence with his millions of followers on social networks, he who does not hesitate to talk about his private life or his future decisions on his multiple companies. Moreover, we can also talk about Elon Musk as a very influential person on the ups and downs of the stock market, he who with the help of a single Tweet, has the power to change the game on the stock market when he reveals a relevant information on the future of his own car brand.

Described as a clown, a genius, a master builder, a visionary, an industrialist, a showman, a cad, a sort of delirious hybrid between Thomas Edison, P.T. Barnum, Andrew Carnegie and Doctor Manhattan from Watchmen, Elon Musk is also the one who aspires to save our planet, whether by electrifying our means of transportation or by going to Mars to found an extraterrestrial colony. On paper, TIME magazine’s Person of the Year is worth more than $250 billion US dollars on his own.

Elon Musk may be a controversial figure, but the founder of Tesla can no longer be ignored more than ten years after the first Tesla hit the market.
