Speaking to YouTuber Marques Brownlee, the Microsoft co-founder gave compliments to Tesla for creating automobiles popular, even though he ended up getting Porsche’s dedicated EV.  “Tesla, in case you had to name 1 firm that’s helped push that, it s them stated Gates. “I only acquired a Porsche, a Taycan which is an electric car and I have to mention it s a premium-priced car, but it is very trendy,” Gates added. “That’s my first electric car, and I’m enjoying it a great deal. ”
