Musk has released three Tesla Master Plans so far, the first one was released in 2006, the second one in 2016 and the last one was unveiled in March last year.

Musk's 2006 "secret master plan" included the creation of a sports car, an affordable car and providing zero emission electric power generation options.

In 2016, Musk unveiled his "Master Plan, Part Deux," which included expanding the electric vehicle lineup to all major segments and achieving "true self-driving." In 2022, Tesla's Semi heavy-duty electric trucks began "pilot production," while the Cybertruck was launched late last year.

As part of the 2016 plan, Musk claimed that Tesla drivers would be able to sleep, read, or do anything else enroute to their destination while making money by renting out their autonomous vehicles when they are not in use.

While Tesla hasn't rolled out a fully autonomous vehicle yet, the company did roll out a paid Full Self Driving option to hundreds of thousands of customers. However, the system isn't fully autonomous given that it requires an attentive driver at the helm. Moreover, the FSD was categorized as a ‘crash risk’ by US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration last year.

The FSD system is in addition to the driver assistance system called Autopilot, which all Tesla cars are already equipped with. Tesla also seems to be making progress with launching FSD system in China after recently striking a deal with Baidu.

During the last Master Plan in 2023, Musk outlined some key environmental goals like adding renewable energy to the existing grid, producing more electric vehicles and building sustainably fueled planes and boats. The billionaire also stated that mass production of Cybertruck would begin in 2024.

Netizens react to Elon Musk's Tesla Masterplan claim: 

One user on X while commenting on Musk's post wrote, “Tesla will own transportation, labor, and energy. Starlink will own telecommunications. X will own peer-to-peer information exchange. All of these are somehow intertwined, and we're gonna put it all on Mars. You're welcome.”

Another user suggested, “Master Plan 4: Now that the Earth has been saved, it is time Tesla focuses on saving the Universe... with SpaceX... and all of Elon's other companies. Hold on tight! The end”

“Robots, flying cars, and autonomy? Whatever it is, it will be awesome because Tesla has the best engineers in the world working for them.” wote another user
