By comparison, his earlier plans seem tame and, quite frankly, pedestrian when you consider his future projects, which go far beyond launching a couple more electric vehicles.
That said, it’s Musk’s more-than-proficient execution of those projects which have made them look so easily achievable - something that Musk keenly pointed out isn’t so easy to do - commenting on how Tesla and Ford are the only two US carmakers that haven’t yet been bankrupted.
While he’s achieved what he wanted in ten years, the roll-out of this second part of the plan will surely take much longer. Largely dependent on regulators understanding how to make fully autonomous cars viable on public roads, his plans for car-sharing based on summoning a Tesla vehicle wherever you want could easily be twenty years away, based on the current lack of clarity on legalising self-driving cars.
What Musk hasn’t revealed in ‘Masterplan, part deux’ is timeframes for new models - a compact SUV and pick-up, his solar project or public transport endeavours - though, of course, we’ve asked.
