This is not the first time Musk has made remarks about other founder-CEOs. He has previously commented about Facebook's Mark Zuckerg and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

In an interview with YouTuber Marques Brownlee, Gates appreciated Tesla's efforts in developing electric vehicles (EVs).

Brownlee raised the subject of Tesla, noting that their products were still premium.

Passenger cars are “one of the most hopeful” factors in lowering the costs of clean energy alternatives, Gates said.

“And certainly Tesla, if you had to name one company that’s helped drive that, it’s them,” Gates said.
