Elon Musk has hinted at plans to push Tesla to “extreme” by teasing the release of “Tesla Part 3 Master Plan” on Twitter the day before the automaker’s first European plant opens.
On Monday, Musk revealed on Twitter the topics that will dominate the next edition of Tesla’s long-term strategy: artificial intelligence and the growth of the automaker’s business.
“Tesla’s key themes will be scaled up to the extreme dimensions necessary for humanity to move away from fossil fuels and artificial intelligence,” Musk said. tweetedI “but will also include sections from SpaceX, Tesla, and The Boring Company.”
The plan could detail what “peak size” looks like for Tesla and lay out the automaker’s strategy to ramp up production and supply chain amid a global pandemic and supply chain constraints.
Tesla will open its first factory in Europe on Tuesday. The $5 billion plant in Berlin will produce more than half a million electric vehicles a year to compete with Europe’s largest automaker Volkswagen and its $100 billion investment in electric vehicles.
Last week, Tesla closed its 24-hour Gigafactory in Shanghai for two days amid a surge in Omicron cases in China and supply chain restrictions. This plant produces about 2,000 vehicles per day and exports a significant number of Model 3 and Model Y vehicles to Europe.
The first two parts of the “Master Plan” turned out to be a precise plan for the development of the Company’s products and technologies; The first part, a 2006 blog post titled “Tesla Motors’ Secret Master Plan (Just Between You and Me)” outlined Tesla’s proof of concept.
A decade later, Musk’s “Part Deux” masterplan update discussed plans to develop battery packs and launch new models, including electric pickups and SUVs. Near the end of the second part of the company, Musk took to Twitter to tease the next head of Tesla.
Also, for the first time, the master plan is focused on Musk’s individual companies, sparking rumors that he plans to set up an umbrella company to keep all of his companies under one roof. However, the context in the SpaceX and The Boring Company tweets could also refer to a future collaboration between the companies.
