    It would be interesting if his acceptance speech spoke to the battles between Tesla and Edison.

    Eek. You're known by the company you keep, and past winners of Edison Achievement not only include Martha Stewart but TWO separate Amway charming fellows. As far as I'm concerned, the only worthy reason for Mr Musk to join this group is because of the ironic connection with Edison.

    Edison, being the DC guy, is as germane to Tesla Motors cars as Tesla, the AC guy. The Tesla car has DC batteries and DC SuperChargers while using AC for drive power and low-level charging. Kinda 50/50 but Nikolai was long overdue for the fame & prestige.
