Invited to speak during a (very long) podcast, Elon Musk was asked about a multitude of subjects, some of which were very personal, such as his home and his sleep pattern. Of course, the richest man in the world got involved.
Elon Musk is in good shape. At the annual meeting in front of Tesla shareholders, he indicated that he believed Tesla could produce 100 million vehicles a year within ten years. “It’s totally doable,” he said. For comparison, Toyota, the world’s largest manufacturer of all vehicle types, is a little over 10 million units. Ten times less then.
After several tumultuous months, the CEO of Tesla has regained optimism. He may be able to announce the launch of a new Gigafactory before the end of the year, he told shareholders.
“My friends can’t believe it”
There is probably no direct link with this good mood found, but Elon Musk has recently moved. This is what he explained in the podcast Full Sendavailable here.
He spends most of his nights in a house located in Boca Chica, 800 meters from the SpaceX rocket factory. A “very small” all the same with three bedrooms, he confided during the podcast. And again, it is only because the garage has been transformed that there are three bedrooms.
Elon Musk said he bought this house for just $45,000. “When my friends come, they can’t believe I live in this house,” he said. As a reminder, his fortune is estimated by Bloomberg at $268 billion.
In reality, the richest man in the world did not move far, since he already lived in Boca Chica before. There too, he had already opted for a tiny houseworth $55,000, which he… rented from SpaceX.
6 hours of sleep per night
During the interview, Elon Musk also talked about what his sleep pattern was like. This one is special to say the least. Indeed, the boss of Tesla and SpaceX assured to sleep only six hours a day. A figure he had already advanced in the past.
The centi-billionaire said he usually goes to sleep around 3 a.m., only to wake up around 9 a.m. When he woke up, he got into the “bad habit” of immediately picking up his phone to see if any “emergencies happened during the night. »
A ritual that he does not like and that he would like to be able to replace with a sports session. Recall that Elon Musk is likely to spend even shorter nights soon, given that the lawsuit brought by Twitter about the takeover of the company will open in mid-October.
