Jeff Bezos – 1997 Honda Accord
With a net worth of almost $200 Billion, you would expect Bezos to roam around in some flashy expensive cars. No! Bezos chose a Honda Accord in 1997 and still drives a newer generation of the same car. Wondering what he used to drive before the Accord? Well, it was a 1987 Chevrolet Blazer. Seems like Bezos doesn’t like to spend much on his commutes! This is a symbol of how Amazon operates because it shows Bezos doesn’t spend on things which are not important for the customer.
Alice Walton – Ford F-150
The one above is the latest version of the Ford F-150 King Ranch. Alice Walton has also kept it simple and cheap in terms of her car. Walton used to ride a 2006 model of the Ford F-150 King Ranch. She can easily buy some expensive ride considering her net worth of $54.9B but she still chose the Ford F-150. Her father too drove an F-150! We guess it’s their favourite family truck.
