Bill Gates thinks Tesla Semi and electric planes will ‘probably never work’

September 7, 2020

Former Microsoft Founder and CEO Bill Gates has recently said some controversial comments about the upcoming Tesla Semi trucks and also Elon Musks recent declaration of the possibility of electric planes. In recent times Bill Gates has tried to improve the world around him by trying to solve major world issues. He is recently becoming more prevalent in the media due to his cautionary tale that we didn’t prepare well enough for the pandemic. 

However, recently he made some comments regarding going electric. “Even with big breakthroughs in battery technology, electric vehicles will probably never be a practical solution for things like 18-wheelers, cargo ships, and passenger jets. Electricity works when you need to cover short distances, but we need a different solution for heavy, long-haul vehicles.”

With this comment we believe that Bill Gates does think the future of transport is electric. However, there needs to be a dramatic improvement in technology before that can happen with airplanes and world wide Semi transports.
