But this is 2021, after all. No one seems surprised by much.

Elon Musk’s approach to running a company is anything but conventional, but whatever you might think of him or his strategies, there’s little doubt of his indelible impact across multiple industries, including aerospace, personal technology, and, yes, automotive.
