The sales were reportedly scheduled in September to exercise options that are set to expire in 2022.

The recent stock sale brings the billionaire’s total sale of Tesla stock to $9.85 billion in November.

It will be remembered that Musk sold $6.9 billion worth of stock on November 10 and another $1.9 billion on November 15 and 16 to offset his tax deficit.

Following the mass sales, the shares of the electric car company fell by 15.4%, marking Tesla’s worst week in almost 2 years.

It all began when Elon Musk made a Twitter poll on Nov. 6 asking his followers if he should sell 10% of the stock.

The poll ended with the majority of the voters asking him to sell the stocks and he did a few days later.
