Elon Musk, chief executive of electric car maker Tesla, said the company would die without him. He did not want to work as the CEO of the company, but the company can not move forward without him, he said.
During a court debate, he said he would like to spend time in design and engineering.
When asked about the role of CEO at Tesla, he said, “I hate it. I want to spend a lot of my time in design and engineering, which is my own desire. ‘
He went on to say, “I don’t want to be the boss of anything.” But he argued that the company would die if he was not the CEO of Tesla.
Delaware court in Chancery is debating whether Tesla spent more money when it bought Solar City in 2016. Musk has been accused of making a decision on Tesla’s board alone, which has had a negative impact on investors.
