It’s official. Elon Musk just announced on Twitter that the new Investor Day conference will take place on March 1, 2023 at the Gigafactory in Austin, Texas. With this third edition, the billionaire intends to present his new “Master Plan” for Tesla.

According to the new Twitter boss, he intends to detail “the path to a fully sustainable energy future for the Earth.” If Elon Musk has not yet gone into details, we already know that during the event a new generation platform will be mentioned (which, in particular, will allow the production of electric vehicles costing less than 25,000 euros).

Elon Musk’s “master plans” between specific announcements and comet plans

The electric car mogul’s first “Master Plan” was unveiled in 2006. During Investor Day, the brand unveiled its ambition to develop luxury electric sports cars. The second step was to use the profits from sales to finance the development of cheaper cars.

We had to wait until 2016 to open the second part of Musk’s Master Plan. This is where Tesla’s projects and promises multiply: its entry into the solar energy market with a solar roof, or the brand’s emergence in virtually all automotive segments. Of course, we should also be mindful of Elon Musk’s commitment to autonomous driving and autopilot, the capabilities of which are advertised in a completely bogus video.

Finally, many projects announced in 2016 were never implemented. In 2021, Elon Musk himself admitted that he made mistakes with Solar Roof, which, in particular, caused cost overruns and significant delays in the delivery of solar panels to customers.

As for the presence of the brand in all segments, this is far from the case, there are only four cars in the catalog (Model 3, X, Y and S). As far as autonomous driving is concerned, needless to say, the technology is still far from delivering on its original promise. To make matters worse, Autopilot is at the center of numerous federal safety investigations by both the NHTSA (the federal agency responsible for traffic safety) and the US Department of Justice. Indeed, will we still be entitled to an avalanche of plans for a comet that only Elon Musk has the secret to? Answer March 1, 2023.
