Magazine Picks Elon Musk as 2013’s Most Influential Man

If you’re a regular reader of our site, you’ll probably have already seen the plethora of stories we’ve posted that in some way involved the Tesla Motors and Space X CEO and co-founder Elon Musk. The case was such not because of a particular affinity for him or his work, but rather because he always seemed to do or say something that needed to be reported on.

There have been so many of these stories that it has caught the eye of publications from non-automotive fields too (naturally), and this has culminated with Ask Men choosing him as their Most Influential Man of 2013, after having made Time’s list of 100 most influential people earlier in the year!

An impressive ascent for Musk, clearly a very able businessman that seems to be working against the industry trends, but doing it in a mainstream-understandable way, if that makes sense…

Naturally, the magazine made references to Musk being akin to a modern-day real-world superhero and went into detail about his contribution to the world-wide electric car scene through the success of the Model S.

Below, you’ll find one of Musk’s Latest video interviews, this time on the sidelines of the UK Model S launch.
