#Tesla #Car – Here’s Elon Musk’s master plan for the future of transportation : Elon Musk’s master plan: part two is here, and it’s a doozy. Rather than set out a short-term vision, he’s setting out a plan for how Tesla will save the world. No, actually.
In the plan, he’s outlining how Tesla as we know it is going to change. Forget fast sports cars: the future Tesla will feature pickup trucks, semi trailers and urban buses, with those concepts to be unveiled next year.
Musk’s plan is centered around four main themes:
- integrating solar power and energy storage into every house in the world
- making vehicles autonomous
- sharing vehicles among users
- make all vehicles, be they cars, trucks, or buses, fully electric
A lot of this isn’t actually revolutionary, per se: the end of per-person car ownership has been predicted by the rise of Uber, Powerwall and Solar City are already working on the non-grid energy part, and everyone and their startup-friendly dog is developing a self-driving vehicle of some kind.
But to bring all the pieces together in one company, while also saying that this plan is going to save the human race? That’s ballsy. But I guess this is Elon Musk we’re talking about.
