It came just a day after boss Elon Musk, 49, overtook Amazon founder Jeff Bezos to become the world’s richest person. 

Musk has an estimated fortune of more than $195billion (£144billion), according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. That was thanks to the extraordinary rally of Tesla’s shares, which have rocketed nearly 800 per cent over the past 12 months. 

The firm has been boosted by its recent inclusion in the blue chip S&P 500 index, which forced tracker funds to buy its shares. 

And its rise puts it on course to join the exclusive club of US firms worth $1 trillion (£737billion) or more, which includes Apple, Microsoft, Amazon and Google-parent Alphabet. Apple tops the list, at $2.2trillion.
