Elon Musk and Herbert Diess have known each other for many years. Despite the fact that they lead competing companies, they strive for similar goals, for which they respect each other. Diess recently praised Musk again, calling him a brilliant person.

Herbert Diess, in a recent interview at the IAA Mobility in Munich, expressed his gratitude to Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Talking to CNN Business about the parallels between him and Musk, Diess said he has a very high opinion of him. “I really respect what he does. I think he is a brilliant person. And it really matters. He is changing the world with his projects,” Diess said. “I really like that he thinks very far into the future. He thinks far away. And he's a brilliant guy," he continued.

Musk has founded, invested in, and developed several companies that operate in various industries, including SpaceX, Tesla, Neuralink, OpenAI, and The Boring Company. All of these companies are transforming several of the largest and most important areas for humanity: Automotive, Aerospace, Telecommunications, Energy, Transportation, Infrastructure/Tunneling, AI, and Healthcare.

Due to the fact that company leaders have many similar goals, Musk has also repeatedly expressed respect for Diess. For example, in 2019, he tweeted that Diess is doing more than any major car manufacturer to move to electric vehicles.
