Instead of working on brace new Tesla models, the electric carmaker may prioritize scaling up the production of its existing ones in its Master Plan 3 roadmap, tips Elon Musk. Tesla's Master Plan 3 will be all about 'scaling to extreme size,' he teased, in order to end our dependency on fossil fuels.

Just after advising to drill for more oil and gas in order to offset the marker impact of Russia's Ukraine invasion, Elon Musk now reveals that Tesla's Master Plan Part 3 will be all about humanity divesting from fossil fuels. How? Well, by "scaling" Tesla to "extreme size." What Tesla's CEO most likely means by that is that the third Master Plan edition will be aiming to bulk up the carmaker's mass electric vehicle production capacity in order to get more gas-guzzlers off the road. He also mentioned that developments in the field of artificial intelligence, such as Tesla's autonomous driving software will play a prominent role in the plan.

So far, Tesla has announced two master plans whose letter it more or less followed to the extent that market conditions allowed, so it must be really serious about production scaling now. The Tesla Master Plan Part 1 was introduced way back in 2006 and consisted of the following simple starting steps:

  1. Build sports car
  2. Use that money to build an affordable car
  3. Use that money to build an even more affordable car
  4. While doing above, also provide zero emission electric power generation options

The Tesla Master Plan Part 2 (Deux) included more ambitious goals when it was revealed ten years later than Master Plan 1, in 2016:

  1. Create stunning solar roofs with seamlessly integrated battery storage
  2. Expand the electric vehicle product line to address all major segments
  3. Develop a self-driving capability that is 10X safer than manual via massive fleet learning
  4. Enable your car to make money for you when you aren't using it

Now that Elon Musk is working on the Tesla Master Plan Part 3 and already posting teasers about it, the plan has a chance to be released as soon as this year, and it may bring bad news for those waiting on new vehicles from Tesla. Elon Musk already announced that the Cybertruck electric pickup launch has been pushed to a later date, while the promised US$35,000 entry-level Tesla is not being prioritized at the moment, so the Master Plan 3 is indeed shaping up to be all about solving production bottlenecks and scaling up Tesla's existing EVs rather than the introduction of bold new models going forward.
