“Master Plan, Part 3” in the making?

Summary of previous seasons

Season 1: Inception

The master plan, first the name, published by Elon Musk… has gone completely or almost unremarkable. This is even if it reveals the company’s long-term goals and strategy. This first episode, written in 2006, laid the main lines of what now seems familiar to us.

Namely, how should a newcomer enter the car market, within the reach of the largest number of people. And that’s why, by offering an advanced range, from top-of-the-line sports cars, like the Roadster, to affordable mainstream sedans like the popular Model 3.

Another important point developed by this first part: the potential for electric car owners to become “energy positive,” thanks to renewable energy sources (solar energy in mind) to recharge their electric car.

Season Two: Unity

It took about ten years to implement the goals set in the first part. So the second part of the master plan was born at a time when the state of the company was developing, in particular the production of the Model S and Model X.

Published in 2016, “Master Plan, Part 2 emphasized Tesla’s desire to enter all segments of the electric vehicle, such as, for example, heavy trucks (Tesla Semi Project). Elon Musk showed that he had more ideas, as he highlighted in his plan on the synergies between his various projects.He emphasizes the importance of Tesla Energy (and its range of products, such as solar panels and tiles), as well as the importance given to the driver assistance system (autopilot)

Finally, he laid the foundation for the Tesla network, which is ideally possible once self-driving becomes a reality.

Update on Season 2: There are still episodes left

All of the goals that Elon Musk set in his first part, about launching the Model 3, have been met. While the goals listed in Part Two have proven to be much bolder, and therefore more difficult to achieve.

Thus, cars that were announced with a lot of tweets, such as the Tesla Semi and Cybertruck are still waiting for production. Solar roof tiles experienced significant delays. Encouragingly, Full Autonomous Driving (FSD) is being introduced, with beta, as seen here, in a short video from YouTube channel “Whole Mars Blog”:

But a truly autonomous car still seems like a long-term goal.

So, Season 3: Review, anticipation, or precipitation?

All these considerations should not make the “Master Plan, Part 3” unsuitable or inappropriate. In fact, Elon Musk showed that he has a real big picture to see Tesla. Plus, her long tenure running the company gives her a good idea of ​​where she could be headed.

With this in mind, we understand that assumptions multiply, regarding the content of this new authorship. Some TSLA specialists, who have been following the company’s development for several years, suggest it could herald Tesla’s transition from car manufacturing to a company more centered around artificial intelligence and big data.

In fact, the focus on these two sectors is not as strange as it might seem at first glance. Especially if we consider projects like Optimus, the mass of data collected, in real time, through applications installed on vehicles.

And if we dig a little more, we realize that the California manufacturer is already expanding its field of expertise to other areas. Thus, advertisements about bots tend to show that Tesla’s future passes through the development of services targeted at the industry.

This seems to be a key thing for Elon Musk. On Twitter recently, he noted the respect he holds for those who do an “honest work” of serving their fellow human beings. Let Elon Musk take the floor to conclude:

Working hard to create useful products and services for your fellow human beings is morally good. I have a lot of respect for the colleagues who did an honest day at Tesla and SpaceX, who build and maintain cars, rockets, Starlinks, batteries, solar and more. “.
