We often hear Tesla compared to Apple and Elon Musk compared to Steve Jobs. However, a comparison to Amazon and CEO Jeff Bezos may be more fitting.
Tesla is in the beginning stages of being a major market disruptor, it's just going to take some time. This isn't much different than Amazon's story.
Amazon's patent for a drone that would be able to charge an electric car on the fly is a fabulous idea. Is there a chance it could work in practice?
100,000 Twitter followers chose Tesla as the most innovative company by a landslide. Perhaps business executives should look to Elon Musk for guidance.
It's difficult for analysts to see Tesla's long-term vision over short-term profit. However, emissions-free transportation, and self-driving cars is a big deal.
