Tesla Inc CEO Elon Musk has visited Germany to discuss his new European Tesla factory after overtaking Mark Zuckerberg to become the world's third richest man with his $115billion (£86.4billion) fortune.  

Tesla is building an electric car plant just outside Berlin, and is scheduled to meet German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier today during a visit to discuss the plans. 

Additionally, the billionaire entrepreneur visited biotech firm CureVac yesterday, which is in the later stages of developing a potential vaccine for coronavirus. 

Musk's visit comes a day after he overtook Zuckerberg to become the world's third richest man, with a net worth of $115billion, prompted by the sudden Tesla stock surge of 12 per cent on Monday, Bloomberg reported.
