New Delhi, Auto Desk. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been accused of raping a female employee, which Musk has denied while explaining this. According to media reports, Elon Musk has denounced claims that he sexually assaulted a flight attendant on a private jet in 2016, saying “this is completely untrue.”

Posting from his Twitter account, Musk said that the attacks against me should be seen from the political side. This is their standard playbook, but nothing will stop me from fighting for a better future and my right to free speech. However, despite all this, trouble remains on the head.

What’s the matter?

Actually this incident is being told of the year 2016, when the victim woman was working as a crew member on Elon Musk’s SpaceX corporate flight. It is alleged that Elon Musk inappropriately touched the victim woman on the flight at that time and asked for a massage. The incident happened during a flight to London. The woman was then mentally tortured and paid $250,000 (about Rs 2 crore) to settle the claim. The claim of attempted rape of the woman was confirmed by a flight attendant. However, Elon Musk’s attempt to rape was termed as a political stunt.

Sales of electric cars may be affected

It is being speculated that amidst all these claims, it can be seen on Musk’s electric car business. Tesla’s brand has been hit by sexual harassment allegations against Musk and Musk’s political remarks, and shares of the electric car maker fell more than 10 percent on Friday. For information, let us tell you that Tesla currently sells Model 3, Model X, Model Y and Model S. Out of which the Model X and Model Y were also tested in India, but their launch plan in India has been put on hold due to the demand for reduction in import taxes.
