    Makes sense.

    According to http://www.autonews.com/article/20120408/OEM05/304089993/abu-dhabi-sells-small-tesla-motors-stake :

    "We sold all 7,297,139 shares that we held after these were transferred to us from Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority in December 2010. This represents roughly 7 percent of all Tesla Motor shares," said TAQA spokesman Allan Virtanen.

    And http://www.abudhabicityguide.com/news/news-details.asp?newsid=4250 states that:

    H.H. Sheikh Diab bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Authority (ADWEA).


    Having bought a 7-percent stake in a company, I'd expect him to want samples of that company's product.
