Elon Musk has hit back at  Bill Gates who earlier cast doubt on his ability to develop electric vehicles for long-haul travel. A Twitter follower asked Musk about his opinion on Gates' comment, and he replied: "He has no clue".

Gates wrote late August that the problem with long-haul electric vehicles is that batteries are big and heavy. He pointed to biofuels -- rather than battery power -- as a possible solution for commercial vehicles.
