– Elon Musk unveiled his ‘Master Plan 3’ which includes expanding production capacity, launching new models, improving self-driving technology and creating a robo-taxi network.
– Tesla did not reveal its next generation 3 car design, but confirmed that two upcoming models will be joining the product portfolio: a compact SUV and a pickup truck.
– Tesla announced that its next gigafactory will be built in Mexico, near Monterrey, where it will produce batteries and vehicles for the Latin American market.
Master Plan 3 is Elon Musk’s vision for creating “a sustainable energy civilization” by expanding Tesla’s products and services beyond electric vehicles. Some of the key elements of Master Plan 3 are:
– Adding renewable power to the existing grid, such as solar panels and batteries.
– Producing more electric vehicles, including a compact SUV, a pickup truck, a semi truck, a bus and a robo-taxi.
– Installing heat pumps in homes and buildings to reduce heating and cooling costs.
– Using high-temperature heat delivery and hydrogen for industrial applications that require high energy density.
– Building sustainably fueled planes and boats that can fly or sail without emissions.
Master Plan 3 aims to benefit Tesla’s customers by offering them a range of products and services that can help them reduce their carbon footprint, save money on energy costs, and enjoy a safer and more convenient driving experience. Some of the benefits are:
– Creating stunning solar roofs with seamlessly integrated battery storage that can power homes and vehicles with clean energy.
– Expanding the electric vehicle product line to address all major segments, from compact SUVs to semi trucks, with competitive prices and performance.
– Developing a self-driving capability that is 10 times safer than manual via massive fleet learning, and enabling customers to make money from their cars when they aren’t using them by joining a robo-taxi network.
– Installing heat pumps in homes and buildings that can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 50%, and using high-temperature heat delivery and hydrogen for industrial applications that require high energy density.
– Building sustainably fueled planes and boats that can fly or sail without emissions, opening up new possibilities for travel and transportation.
