The billionaire, who has a net worth of $252 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, busted a move as the first Tesla Model Y EVs rolled out to 30 customers at the $5.5 billion Tesla Gigafactory Berlin. The state-of-the-art facility officially opened in Germany after months of delays due to governmental and environmentalist resistance.
As the Model Ys were presented, Musk showed his excitement by getting down to some German funk with the crowd cheering him on. A drone also captured the moment, which Musk interacted with as he got busy to the music.

His legion of fans applauded Musk for the candid moment on Twitter with appreciation despite his dancing technique being a bit awkward.
One fan of the car entrepreneur said, “That’s what I like about him: just don’t care, if you feel like dancing, dance!”

Another said, “I see a happy man,” while another supportive fan said, “since he works as hard as he does, he can dance any way he likes.”
I see a happy man, not being worried about what other people think about him.

This is not the first time that Musk has taken the opportunity to show off his dancing skills. The controversial CEO previously got down at the opening of the Shanghai manufacturing plant in 2020, which was also captured on video and circulated on social media to great fanfare.
