Anand Mahindra, the chairman of Mahindra Group, is known for his witty tweets and strong digital presence which has made him fairly popular on social media. Recently, the billionaire businessman has posted a video on his personal Twitter account jokingly comparing a bull cart's running cost to Tesla cars'.

"I don't think @elonmusk & Tesla can match the low cost of this renewable energy-fuelled car," Mahindra wrote in the tweet. "Not sure about the emissions level, though, if you take methane into account...", he added suggesting that while the bull cart has a lower running cost, the emission levels might be higher.
