Tesla, Inc. is a publicly traded company.
Shareholders own the company collectively.
Elon Musk is the largest individual shareholder.
As of my last update in 2021, Musk held around 20% of Tesla shares.
While he's often associated as the "face" of Tesla, he's not the sole owner.
He joined Tesla after its foundation and became its driving force.
Musk's leadership and vision greatly influence Tesla.
The company's board and shareholders make major decisions.
